Julia Kowalski accepted as an Alexander-von-Humbold Scout
Outstanding scientist who made a name for theirselves in their discipline, or are at the beginning of a promising executive research career, who are also well-connected internationally and have already mentored junior researchers, have the chance to apply as an Henriette-Herz-Scout within the Alexander-von-Humbold-Foundation.
The Henriette-Herz-Scout-Program will give the scouts the opportunity to look for three outstanding junior research fellows for their team who have not previously been considered for an application to the Humboldt Foundation or a research stay in Germany. Moreover, the Foundation wants to boost the percentage of women amongst the fellowship-recipients, therefore the first person who is recommend from a scout should be a female researcher. After formal approval, the fellowships will be granted directly.

ADOPT – Advancing Optimization Technologies Through International Collaboration
Led by the Sargent Centre for Process Systems Engineering (CPSE) at Imperial College London and University College London, the joint Centre will pioneer digital tools at the interface between computational optimization and machine learning. These two areas will mutually reinforce each other so as to enhance decision making in complex processes and large-scale systems, benefiting from the fast advances in data analysis and mathematical modeling which are core competences at JARA-CSD. The new methodologies to improve design, operations and supply chains will deliver significant benefits and bolster the positions of Germany and the UK as world leaders in the disciplines of process systems engineering and smart manufacturing.
Prof. Alexander Mitsos will coordinate JARA-CSD’s effort in the new Centre-to-Centre collaboration.
