HEaD Project - Higher Education and Development

Through the HEaD project, supported by the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region with the co-financing of the European Social Fund, the International Advanced School of Advanced Studies promotes between others the Operation 1: Funding of research grants for research activities on subjects consistent with the areas of the Intelligent Specialization Strategy of the Friuli Venezia Giulia Region (S3) and related development trajectories. The research activity is realized at SISSA, in colloborations with other research organizations and institutions, both public and private.

INDAM-GNCS 2018: Model Reduction in Medical Applications

Introduction:  This project aims at the design and the analysis of innovative methods for reducing the computational complexity of mathematical models relevant for medical applications, by appropriate surrogating techniques. Although it is now evident the potential role of mathematical modeling in medical applications for many proofs of concept, the real penetration of clinical practice is prevented by many factors.

EID - ROMSOC (Reduced Order Modelling, Simulation and Optimization of Coupled systems) - H2020-MSCA-ITN-765374

ROMSOC is a European Industrial Doctorate (EID) project in the programme Innovative Training Networks (ITN) and part of Marie Sklodowska Curie Actions within the Horizon 2020 programme. The ROMSOC EID Network brings together 15 international academic institutions and 11 industry partners and supports the recruitment of eleven Early Stage Researchers (ESRs). Each ESR will be working on an individual research project in the host institution with secondments related to their research in other academic and industrial partners of the network.

DANIELI 3 (Fluid-structure interaction for industrial applications) – POR FESR 2017

SISSA is partner of Danieli 3 project (Danieli Research Center) that is funded by POR-FESR 2014-2020 - Activity 1.3.a – R&D.

Ottimizzazione di forme prodiere e poppiere di carena mediante l'uso di algoritmi parametrici sviluppati in ambienti open source - HEaD FSE

L’obiettivo del progetto è l’ottimizzazione delle forme di una carena mediante sistemi di parametrizzazione delle forme geometriche delle prua e delle poppa sia in condizioni di mare calmo di sia di mare mosso. La prima fase del progetto prevede la scelta di un sistema open source di parametrizzazione della carena con particolare attenzione alla definizione delle parti estreme prodiere e poppiere. Il parametrizzatore scelto dovrà essere abbinato ad un solver e ad un sistema di ottimizzazione pure essi di tipo open source.
