European Training Network “Joint Training on Numerical Modelling of Highly Flexible Structures for Industrial Applications”

Written by

spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Martin Arnold, coordinator: Sarah Keil
(funding 2019-2023)

Highly flexible slender structures like yarns, cables, hoses or ropes are essential parts of high-performance engineering systems. The complex response of such structures in real operational conditions is far beyond the capabilities of current modelling tools that are at the core of modern product development cycles. The THREAD project will bring together young mechanical engineers and mathematicians who will develop mechanical models and numerical methods for designing highly flexible slender structures, and support the development of future virtual prototyping tools for products where such structures have a key role in functional system performance.

The European Training Network is funded by HORIZON 2020 – Marie Skłodowska-Curie Actions (MSCA). MSCA provide grants for all stages of researchers’ careers – be they doctoral candidates or highly experienced researchers – and encourage transnational, intersectoral and interdisciplinary mobility. The MSCA enable research-focused organisations (universities, research centres, and companies) to host talented foreign researchers and to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide.  website

integrated Research Training Group “Ultrafast Spin Dynamics”

Written by

Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Wolf Widdra, coordinator: Dr. Britta Anstötz
funding period 2018-2021 by DFG

The iRTG offers a structured qualification program in scientific and key skills to all PhD students financed and associated to the CRC/TRR. Research focuses on Ultrafast Dynamics of Magnetic Order and Ultrafast Spin Currents. Its training is divided into research training in several laboratories and in different research contexts, as well as an external training program, which offers courses for key skills. The PhD students have many occasions to actively learn about the works of their colleagues in the CRC, to communicate science and to discuss their own scientific results. The scientific exchange is fostered by a set of opportunities, such as training in other than their own labs, tutorials, seminars and a retreat. [read more]

The graduate school is part of the collaborative research center “Ultrafast Spin Dynamics” (SFB/TRR 227) (Spokespersons: Prof. Dr. Martin Weinelt (FU Berlin), Prof. Dr. Georg Woltersdorf (MLU)), website

Integrated Research Training Group “Polymers: random coils and beyond”

Written by

Spokesman: Prof. Dr. Kay Saalwächter, coordinator: Dr. Ann-Kristin Flieger
funding period 2011-2023 by DFG

The graduate program provides in-depth training in interdisciplinary soft matter research, including the design and preparation of specific materials. A thorough understanding of the basic principles of chemistry, physics and engineering of polymers and soft matter are aims of the research within our graduate school. [read more]

The graduate school is part of the collaborative research center “Polymer under multiple constraints” (SFB/TRR 102) (Spokesman: Prof. Dr. Thomas Thurn-Albrecht, website
