Collaborations with Science and Industry
The Graduate School HGS MathComp is located and run under the umbrella of the Heidelberg Graduate Academy at the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR), the very core of interdisciplinary research and teaching in scientific computing in Heidelberg.
Research groups from the faculties of Mathematics & Computer Science, Physics & Astronomy, Chemistry & Earth Sciences and the Biosciences participate in the School as well as researchers from the faculties of Medicine, Economics & Social Studies and Philosophy of the University of Heidelberg. Non-university collaboration partners in Heidelberg are the German Cancer Research Center (DKFZ), the European Molecular Biology Laboratory (EMBL), the European Media Laboratory Research (EML), and the Center for Modelling and Simulation in the Biosciences (BIOMS).
The school strongly collaborates with the international network of partners and will promote new ways of private public partnership with industry.
Two graduate colleges are currently integrated into HGS MathComp:
HGS MathComp cooperates with many international and national research insitutions. Due to the extensive scientific exchange of these institutions and HGS MathComp, the students enjoy extraordinary lectureres (Romberg Professor), travel opportunities, insight into the best labs and reserch environments.
Many scientific institutions worldwide, with doctoral programs comparable to the proposed school have agreed to collaborate and participate in an exchange program.
In Europe these include:
- The Interdisciplinary Centre for Mathematical and Computational Modelling (ICM) in Warsaw;
- the Interdisciplinary Center for Mathematical Modelling, Statistical Analysis, and Computational Simulation for Scientific and Technological Innovation (MIRIAM/ADAMSS) at the University of Milan;
- the Center for Modeling and Scientific Computing (MOX), Politecnico di Milan;
- the Necas Center for Mathematical Modeling at the Charles University Prague;
- the Graduate School in Computing and Mathematical Sciences (COMAS), University of Jyväskylä;
- the Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) of the Austrian Academy of Sciences in Linz.
Members of HGS MathComp can join into numerous collaborations with industry. These partnerships bring challenging applications from industry practice into the HGS and drive the development of new mathematical and computational methods.
Several industrial partners have explicitly expressed their wish to be actively involved in the graduate school, e.g.
