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.

Linda Gesenhues elected as GAMM Junior

GAMM Juniors are young researchers and members of GAMM, who graduated with exceptional achievements in their diploma/master and/or PhD thesis in the fields of Applied Mathematics or Mechanics.
Each year, for a duration of 3 years, up to 10 new GAMM Juniors are elected. Those young researchers obtain an additional financial and moral support in their academic research starting time and they are encouraged to transfer their knowledge to the next generation of GAMM Juniors.
We are pleased to announce that the associated doctoral fellow Linda Gesenhues was elected this year.

Congratulations Linda!

SPS'21 Conference Organized by Malte Göttsche

The international conference Science - Peace - Security (SPS) took place on September 8 - 10, 2021 at RWTH Aachen University. It was organized by Prof. Malte Göttsche under the topic The impact of new technologies: Destabilizing or enabling resilience? Around 200 participants with different research backgrounds such as natural or technical science but also social and political science had the chance to discuss topics like emerging technologies, confidence-building, cyber security and arms limitation.

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.

IRTG Associated Fellow Violeta Karyofylli passed her Doctoral Exam
