POR FESR 2014-2020

POR FESR 2014-2020 is a European funding programme aiming to strengthen research and to foster technology and innovation advancement. 

The programme purposes include the collaboration among research and enterprises, towards innovation and environmental sustainability.

SISSA is partner of some of POR FESR 2014 – 2020 projects: SOPHYA and PRELICA:

ERC AdG MicroMotility (PI Prof. Antonio De Simone) 2014-2018

The aim of our research is to gain insight into the mechanics of biological motility (in particular, swimming and crawling of microscopic organisms), to distill the key principles that underlie successful locomotion strategies in Nature, and to exploit them for the conceptual design of bio-mimetic, self-propelled micro-devices. We use a combination of theoretical, numerical, and experimental tools to approach the problem of biological and bio-inspired motility from a multidisciplinary perspective.

ERC CoG AROMA-CFD (PI Prof. Gianluigi Rozza) 2016-2021

The aim of AROMA-CFD is to create a team of scientists at SISSA for the development of Advanced Reduced Order Modelling techniques with a focus in Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD), in order to face and overcome many current limitations of the state of the art and improve the capabilities of reduced order methodologies for more demanding applications in industrial, medical and applied sciences contexts.

ROM2S Reduced Order Methods at MIT and SISSA

The MIT-FVG project is, first of all, a big chance to create an important link between two of the major excellence research institute: SISSA and MIT. In SISSA mathLab, Prof. Gianluigi Rozza's group is the one focusing on ROM methodologies in CFD and structural problems. The opportunity of a cooperation with Prof. Anthony T. Patera's group (http://augustine.mit.edu/) and MIT Department of Mechanical Engineering is crucial from the scientific point of view. This collaboration is fundamental thanks to the bridge between the experience of an avant-garde scientific group, that has laid the foundations of the above - mentioned techniques, and a well coordinated young group with a special focus on industrial applications. In practice, it could be very promising and strategic to combine the structural nonlinear analysis of a plate governed by the Von Kàrmàn equations, carried out in SISSA, with the vibroacoustic problems in the RB context investigated at MIT. 

PRELICA (Metodologie avanzate per la progettazione idro-acustica dell’elica navale) - POR FESR 2017

SISSA, è Partner del progetto PRELICA (Metodologie avanzate per la progettazione idro-acustica dell’elica navale) che, come progetto di ricerca e sviluppo nell’ambito delle Tecnologie Marittime, è cofinanziato dal Fondo Europeo per lo Sviluppo Regionale. Le attività del progetto rientrano, infatti, in una delle priorità del Programma Operativo Regionale, Obiettivo «Investimenti a favore della crescita e dell’occupazione» 2014-2020 ovvero l’Asse 1 – “Rafforzare la ricerca, lo sviluppo tecnologico e l’innovazione”, Azione 1.3 – “Sostegno alle attività collaborative di R&S per lo sviluppo di nuove tecnologie sostenibili, di nuovi prodotti e servizi”.

SOPHYA (Seakeeping Of Planing Hull YAchts) - POR FESR

SISSA, è Partner del progetto SOPHYA (Seakeeping Of Planing Hull YAchts) che, come progetto di ricerca e sviluppo nell’ambito delle Tecnologie Marittime, è cofinanziato dal Fondo Europeo per lo Sviluppo Regionale. Le attività del progetto rientrano, infatti, in una delle priorità del Programma Operativo Regionale, Obiettivo «Investimenti a favore della crescita e dell’occupazione» 2014-2020 ovvero l’Asse 1 – “Rafforzare la ricerca, lo sviluppo tecnologico e l’innovazione”, Azione 1.3 – “Sostegno alle attività collaborative di R&S per lo sviluppo di nuove tecnologie sostenibili, di nuovi prodotti e servizi”

PRIN Mathematical and Numerical Modelling of the Cardiovascular System, and their clinical applications 2015-2016

This project deals with the mathematical and numerical modeling of the cardiovascular system. Though inspired by concrete applications in medicine and bioengineering, it focuses mainly on the methodological aspects. Indeed, despite the impressive advancements of the last 20 years in the development of mathematical models for the cardiovascular system, there is still a strong need of improving these tools to make them more reliable, accurate, efficient and capable of treating the complexity of real life problems of medical relevance.
