Lorenzo Gentile, who will start working in November as a PhD student in the UTOPIAE project, visited Gummersbach.
UTOPIAE is a European research and training network looking at cutting edge methods bridging optimisation and uncertainty quantification applied to aerospace systems. The network will run from 2017 to 2021, and is funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions of H2020.
The network is made up of 15 partners across 6 European countries, including the UK, and one international partner in the USA, collecting mathematicians, engineers and computer scientists from academia, industry, public and private sectors.
To train, by research and by example, 15 Early Stage Researchers in the field of uncertainty quantification and optimisation to become leading independent researchers and entrepreneurs that will increase the innovation capacity of the EU.
To equip the researchers with the skills they will need for successful careers in academia and industry. To develop fundamental mathematical methods and algorithms to bridge the gap between Uncertainty Quantification and Optimisation and between Probability Theory and Imprecise Probability Theory for Uncertainty Quantification to efficiently solve high-dimensional, expensive and complex engineering problems.
