New Research Training Group at TUM School of Management
The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) is establishing 20 new Resarch Training Groups (RTGs), including three International Research Training Groups (IRTGs) with partners in the UK, New Zealand and Austria, in order to further strengthen early career researchers in Germany. Topics range from medical imaging processes to the analysis of authority and trust in US policy and society. All programs will be funded with an amount of around 87 million euros for initially 4.5 years. In addition to the 20 new collaborations, the approval committee permitted an extension of seven Research Training Groups for another 4.5 years. The institutions offer doctoral candidates the opportunity to promote a high level of research in a structured research and qualification program. The DFG is currently funding 206 Research Training Groups, including 41 International Research Training Groups. All of the 20 new programs will start their work in 2017.
Among the approved Research Training Groups is also the new Graduate Program “Advanced Optimization in the Networked Economy (AdONE)” represented through Spokesperson Prof. Dr. Stefan Minner, TUM School of Management. The Graduate Program “Advanced Optimization in the Networked Economy” is researching the areas of operations research and management science to develop models and processes to translate them into software solutions that aim at the efficient use of resources through intelligent planning and control. Due to an increasingly interconnected world, several decision-makers are often involved in resource control, and the available data sets become larger therefore a prerequisite for the economic success of companies is the efficient use of resources.
