Doctoral Programme Computational Interdisciplinary Modelling (DK CIM)

In 2010 the Doctoral Programme Computational Interdisciplinary Modelling (DK CIM) was initiated at the University of Innsbruck within the framework of the Research Area Scientific Computing. The purpose of the DK CIM is to provide a substantiated research-guided and well-structured educational training for excellent Ph.D. students in the field of interdisciplinary computational modelling utilizing high performance computing, within the fields of atmospheric science, chemistry, computer science, material science, engineering science, mathematics and physics. The spectrum of scientific disciplines also includes medical computer science as the University of Innsbruck closely cooperates with the health and life science university UMIT.



At the University of Innsbruck scientific computing is one of five research areas, which are approved by the Austrian Federal Ministry of Science, Research and Economy (BMWFW) after thorough evaluation of the research accomplishments in the respective field.
Aims of the Research Area Scientific Computing are to use inherent synergies between various research areas and different fields by cooperating withing the university, as well as between different universities and other institutions in Austria and all over the world. Thus fruitful interdisciplinary research ist fostered by exchanging knowledge and information, by sharing ressources, by coordinating funding for keeping and developing the necessary infrastructure, as well as by enhancing science oriented teaching.
