Many of the most widely used scientifc application software of today were developed largely during a time when the typical amount of compute cores was calculated in tens or hundreds. Within a not too distant future the number of cores will be calculated in at least hundreds of thousands or even millions. A European collaboration group CRESTA has recently been working on a set of renowned scientific software to investigate and develop these codes towards the realm of exascale computing. The codes are ELMFIRE, GROMACS, IFS, HemeLB, NEK5000, and OpenFOAM. This paper contains a summary of the strategies for their development towards exascale and results achieved during the first year of the collaboration project.
