European Industrial Doctorate Programm
An international consortium of eleven academic and eleven industrial partners has been awarded a "European Industrial Doctorate Program" (EID). Under the title "Reduced Order Modeling, Simulation and Optimization of Coupled Systems" eleven doctoral students will develop mathematical methods that play an important role in the increasingly virtual development of industrial products and processes. The researchers are supervised by expert tandems, each consisting of an academic and an industrial representative. They spend at least half the time in a company, the rest in a research facility. The EID will run for four years.
Consortium leader is the Research Center MATHEON (TU Berlin). Further academic Partners are WIAS (HU Berlin), U. Bremen, FAU Erlangen-Nürnberg, INRIA Paris, U. Linz, Polytechnico di Milano, Technological Institute of Industrial Mathematics (ITMATI) Santiago, SISSA Trieste und die BU Wuppertal. In addition, eleven industrial partners from seven countries, as well as the European service network EU-MATHS-IN are involved.
European Industrial Doctorate Programs (EIDs) are sponsored by the European Commission in the framework of Horizon 2020. They are one type of "Innovative Training Networks", which are part of the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA) that support the carriers of scientists and encourage their transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility.
