German Research Foundation Approves Establishment of Three Research Training Groups at RWTH

The German Research Foundation, DFG, has approved three proposals for research training groups from RWTH Aachen. In October, the University will launch the groups to educate and promote highly qualified doctoral candidates. The name of the international research training group is ''Modern Inverse Problems: From Geometry and Data to Models and Applications''. The international research training group consists of researchers from the Aachen Institute of Advanced Study in Computational Engineering Science (AICES) and the Institute for Computational Engineering and Sciences (ICES) at the University of Texas at Austin. Special emphasis will be placed on inverse problems, focusing in particular on the interaction between geometry, data, models, and applications. Eleven RWTH professors are involved in the group, whose spokesperson is Professor Marek Behr, Chair of Computational Analysis of Technical Systems, CATS.

We are looking forward to a successful IRTG and a great cooperation between RWTH Aachen University and the University of Texas at Austin.

AICES Associated Junior Research Group Leader Prof. Elgeti has been recognized with the Umbrella Award 2018

Prof. Stefanie Elgeti has been recognized with the Umbrella Award 2018 for her work in Energy Conversion and Energy Storage. The prize is given by the Umbrella consortium, an alliance between RWTH Aachen University, Technion and Research Center Jülich. With the award, the institutions intend to strengthen the collaboration among members of the alliance. Congratulations!

Charlemagne Distinguished Lecture Series: AICES Welcomes Prof. Denis Noble, Ph.D.

Twice a year, the AICES fellows organize the prestigious Charlemagne Lecture, whose objective is to invite persons, who have achieved impressive accomplishments throughout their career and, in this sense, to get inspired by their scientific achievements. 

As the 15th speaker, the AICES fellows invited Professor Denis Noble Ph.D., Emeritius Professor of Cardiovascular Physiology at the Department of Physiology, Anatomy and Genetics at the University of Oxford, England.

Professor Noble gave a talk on "From Pacing the Heart to the Pace of Evolution" on February 19, 2018 at 3 pm in the GeneraliHall of Super C (6th floor). 

We were very pleased about his visit and we will be honoured to welcome Denis Noble any time again.
