City researchers from the School of Science and Technology have been awarded a Horizon Europe grant of approximately €616k for the SCALE research project led by Professor Manolis Gavaises (Principal Investigator) and supported by Professor Alfredo Pinelli (Co-Investigator).

The project is titled: Industry empowerment to Multiphase fluid dynamics simulations using Artificial intelligence and Statistical methods on modern hardware architectures at Scale. 

The main research objective of the project is to develop simulation methods and reduced-order models using physics-informed and data-driven Machine Learning and optimisation methods.

727619 Together with 16 European and US partners, 12 Doctoral Candidates are expected to be trained against ‘ground-truth’ databases, applying the new simulation tools to industrial problems for the first time.

City’s share of the grant will fully fund two PhD candidates. The project will help further raise City’s profile internationally and among both research and industry sectors of the field.

Horizon Europe is the EU’s key funding programme for research and innovation. It tackles climate change, helps to achieve the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals and boosts the EU’s competitiveness and growth.

The programme facilitates collaboration and strengthens the impact of research and innovation in developing, supporting and implementing EU policies while tackling global challenges. It supports creating and better dispersing of excellent knowledge and technologies.

Horizon Europe creates jobs, fully engages the EU’s talent pool, boosts economic growth, promotes industrial competitiveness and optimises investment impact within a strengthened European Research Area.
