POEMA is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network (2019-2022), offering 15 PhD positions starting from September 2019.

Its goal is to train scientists at the interplay of algebra, geometry and computer science for polynomial optimization problems and to foster scientific and technological advances, stimulating interdisciplinary and intersectoriality knowledge exchange between algebraists, geometers, computer scientists and industrial actors facing real-life optimization problems (read more)

POEMA Consortium

The core academic partner of POEMA, namely INRIA, CNRS, SU, CWI, UvT, UKON, UNIFI, UoB, FAU, UiT. And as this community develops and gains both academic expertise and industrial insight, it will reinforce strategic connections between research and industry. Industry professionals, and POEMA industrial partners (ARTELYS, IBM, NAG, RTE), expect the application of such techniques to play a major role in upcoming technological developments (read more)

Project Plan

POEMA is designed to go beyond traditional paradigms of Mathematical optimization by exploiting new advances in algebra and convex geometry. Mathematical optimization yields significant advantages for many industry and society sectors, ranging from production planning processes, transportation, to energy consumption, and resources control. The project has been structured around six  work-packages To efficiently ensure the training of young researcher on the State-of-the-Art Mathematical optimization (read more)

Board of POEMA

Supervisory Board is the central organ of POEMA project, acting as the decision making body consisting of one representative for each partner either beneficiary or associate.

Our supervisors have extensive experience in PhD supervision and teaching at the highest level. Each academic host has experienced professors, research directors or members with an accreditation to supervise research (HDR), who have successfully supervised several PhDs and senior researchers, and extensive experience in MA thesis supervision (read more)
