Interdisciplinary Mathematics (InterMaths)

Project Details


InterMaths - Interdisciplinary Mathematics” is a newly formed Consortium of five European universities:
• University of L’Aquila, Italy (UAQ, Coordinator)
• Vienna University of Technology, Austria (TUW)
• Hamburg University of Technology, Germany (TUHH)
• University of Côte d'Azur, France (UCA) (UCA)
• Autonomous University of Barcelona, Spain (UAB).
The proposed programme (2 Years, 120 ECTS) addresses applications of Mathematics to Biomedical Sciences and Industrial Engineering, with the twofold aim of producing professional scientists with enhanced mathematical competences for European private industries and enterprises and, at the same time, introducing a unique, integrated, advanced joint programme in Applied Mathematics in the EMJMD catalogue, in line with cutting-edge domains of science and technology. A group of private enterprises will join the programme as “industrial partners”, providing co-supervision and placements in the thesis semesters.
InterMaths stems from a deep and complex networking process touching key items of European integration such as higher education, mobility, transfer of knowledge. As part of such process, some Universities from Eastern Europe are part of the Consortium as Associated Partners in view of existing double-degree agreements with UAQ.

InterMaths is structured as follows:
• Semester 1 based in UAQ, common to all students on Foundations of Applied Mathematics
• Semester 2 based in TUHH or TUW focused on Numerical-Modelling Training
• Semester 3 based in one of the four partner universities focused on Interdisciplinary Training, with each partner covering a specific specialization branch
• Semester 4 entirely devoted to the elaboration of the Master’s Thesis.

The Semester 3 consists of a set of advanced competences on selected interdisciplinary mathematical methodologies, each one focusing on a field of application depending on the branch:
• UAQ: Cancer Modelling and Simulation
• TUHH: Computational Methods in Biomedical Imaging
• TUW: Computational Fluid Dynamics and Industrial Sustainability
• UCA: Stochastic Modelling in Neuroscience
• UAB: Decision Making and Applications to Logistics
All the departments involved have a common topic in the key expression "mathematical modelling", which represents the methodological "glue" of the five branches. The design of the four specialization paths has been outlined on the grounds of the outstanding expertise gained by each full partner in its respective field with the help of some industrial partners. All team members feature scientific achievements of excellent level in their field of expertise and a relevant record of collaborations with private companies/industries/enterprises. A broad set of European and non-European Universities and Research Centers formally accepted to be external partners of the Consortium, including some institutions from partner countries in targeted regions.
