Defect processes in novel materials for energy and nuclear applications. Automated techniques on ab initio calculations
The first priority here is to investigate novel materials for a range of safety and energy applications. Furthermore, the question here is whether it is possible to combine Artificial Intelligent methods and/or develop algorithms to reduce the amount of the demanding calculations. Currently, this topic has a high and direct impact both in academia and industry, as these methods will be transferable in numerous principles such as aerospace, mechanical and automotive engineering, power electronics.
A Decision Support System to Invest in Road Infrastructure for Alleviating Urban Poverty
Fighting poverty in developing nations is key to economic development, social stability and people’s wellbeing. Inadequate investment in road infrastructure and improper provision of road infrastructure contribute to the poor economic development and lack of reliable provision of effective transportation for adequate movement of people to the job market, to health and educational facilities or to the goods market.
