International graduate school for research on Networks, Information Technology and Innovation Management (NITIM) International graduate school for research on Networks, Information Technology and Innovation Management (NITIM)

NITIM is supported by the 7th Framework Programme of the European Union. Network members include PhD candidates, alumni, faculty and industry partners in over 10 countries around the world, representing over 20 nationalities. NITIM network members convene physically at bi-annual PhD consortia to support young scholars and connect network members. Members and partners also meet at more regular intervals, at regional learning circles and career development events

ITN-SPRITE - Supporting Postgraduate Research with Internships in industry and Training Excellence ITN-SPRITE - Supporting Postgraduate Research with Internships in industry and Training Excellence

Funded: European Commission, FP7-PEOPLE-2012-ITN, Duration: 2013-01-01 to 2016-12-31 SPRITE is a multi-disciplinary European training network which brings together Europe’s premier research institutes in technology and applications of ion beams. Those involved are already actively collaborating, for example in the recently very favourably reviewed EC Infrastructure project SPIRIT. SPRITE addresses the urgent European need - identified in a recent Foresight Review - to train the next generation of researchers in this multi- and supra- disciplinary emerging field. Through its Internship Mobility Partnerships (IMPs) SPRITE offers an innovative training package, providing the researchers with the opportunity to gain “real world” experience and “business facing skills” in the private and public sectors. In addition, ELVEs (European Laboratory Visit Exchanges) are an integral part of the training program. In combination with the IMPs, every ER and ESR will thus spend up to 30% of its time outside its host laboratory, part of this time in another EC country. Collaboration with the IAEA opens up a further dimension to SPRITE, enabling the researchers to put their research into a global context and to interact with scientists from all over the world. Despite the numerous participants SPRITE is able to offer a “personalized” training program. For this purpose the “Action Planner”, a web-based training needs analysis tool, developed at the University of Surrey will be used. This maps on to the Researcher Development Framework, currently being trialled by the European Science Foundation. Action Planner allows the training for each researcher to be tailored to their individual needs and aspirations. In addition to individualized training, SPRITE organizes network wide training events, encompassing amongst others technical training and business facing skills. In this way SPRITE researchers will leave not only as a brilliant and experienced researcher but also as a skilled manager, able to lead their own group.

Graduiertenkolleg IGDK 1754: Optimization and Numerical Analysis for Partial Differential Equations with Nonsmooth Structures Graduiertenkolleg IGDK 1754: Optimization and Numerical Analysis for Partial Differential Equations with Nonsmooth Structures

The international research training group (IGDK 1754) “Optimization and Numerical Analysis for Partial Differential Equations with Nonsmooth Structures” is funded by German Research Foundation (DFG) and Austrian Science Fund (FWF). It started on March 1, 2012. This is a joint project of the following four universities: Technische Universität München, Universität der Bundeswehr München, Karl-Franzens-Universität Graz und Technische Universität Graz All doctoral students in the IGDK1754 at the TUM are members of the International School of Applied Mathematics (ISAM) within its umbrella organization TUM Graduate School (TUM GS).

Exzellenzcluster Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics (MAP)

Am Munich-Centre for Advanced Photonics (MAP) entwickeln Physiker, Chemiker, Biologen und Mediziner zukunftsweisende Licht- und lasergetriebene Teilchenquellen. Der Exzellenzcluster gilt als eine der führenden Einrichtungen in den Laserwissenschaften. Licht wird mittlerweile perfekt kontrolliert – von seiner zeitlichen Ausbreitung bis zur Steuerung der Frequenzen. Mit ihren neuen Lichtquellen gewinnen die MAP-Forscher detaillierte Einblicke in den Mikrokosmos von belebter und unbelebter Materie. In Kombination mit innovativen bildgebenden Verfahren werden es die Lichtquellen ermöglichen, die Diagnose heute teilweise noch unheilbarer Krankheiten signifikant zu verbessern und neue Therapieansätze zu realisieren. Dazu besitzen die lasergetriebenen Teilchenquellen das Potenzial, die Heilungschancen vieler Krebsvarianten entscheidend zu erhöhen.
