Factsheet

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)
