Enabling the Next-Generation of Computational Physicists and Engineers (ENGAGE)

Closing Date: 28/02/2022

Programme offering training for early-stage researchers (ESRs) in high performance computing, data science approaches such as machine and deep learning, and quantum computing (QC), and in solving problems ranging from physics to engineering.

The aim of the Enabling the Next-Generation of Computational Physicists and Engineers (ENGAGE) project is to provide training for early-stage researchers (ESRs) in high performance computing, data science approaches such as machine and deep learning, and quantum computing (QC), and in solving problems ranging from physics to engineering. The programme is coordinated by the Cyprus Institute.

The programme is co-funded by the partner institutions and the European Union, under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie Action (grant agreement No 101034267).

Within the framework of the programme, the ESRs will learn to use mathematical modelling, design scalable algorithms, and understand computer architectures and the principles of QC. They will use neural and tensor networks to analyse and extract information from large complex data sets obtained in high energy experiments and synchrotron light facilities.

The doctoral research will be carried out at the six ENGAGE Degree Awarding Institutions: The Cyprus Institute (Cyprus); Humboldt University of Berlin (Germany); Georg-August-Universität Göttingen (Germany); Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule Aachen (Germany); University of Padova (Italy); Technical University of Delft (Netherlands) and the six ENGAGE Research Facilities: European Synchrotron Radiation Facility (France); Deutsches Elektronen-Synchrotron (Zeuthen & Hamburg, Germany); Max Planck Institute for Polymer research (Germany); Foundation for Research & Technology (Greece); and the Synchrotron-light for Experimental Science and Applications in the Middle East (Jordan).
