A 5-day workshop that hosted technical presentations from leaders in the PGC and detonation combustion research fields and provided a number of networking opportunities. All ESRs attended this training event. https://iwdp-icvdcw2022.sciencesconf.org/
2022, July 6-8, Berlin – Pressure gain combustion technology overview short course: This three day training activity provided a concise overview of the state of the art for pressure gain combustion. It has the objective to quickly familiarize the trainees with the multi-disciplinary topics contained within PGC. This focused overview early in the programme, improves communication between the WPs and the ESRs. Some time has been spent demonstrating the RDC and discussing unique aspects of this high frequency, unsteady combustion device. All ESRs attended this training event. PGC Short Course Info Sheet
2022, June 27-July 1, Florence –ART Turbomachinery summer school: http://art.dief.unifi.it ART2022 was the sixth edition of the Summer School on Advanced Research in Turbomachinery The purpose of ART is to provide participants with an overview of advanced topics related to turbomachinery engineering. After two editions held as virtual events due to COVID-19 pandemic, this year the Summer School returned to its traditional in-presence format.
Professors and researchers of the Department of Industrial Engineering (DIEF) has been the instructors of the Summer School. Keynote lectures held by international experts from both academia and industry has also been offered: keynote speakers for ART2022 has been: Prof. A. Nix West Virginia University (USA), Prof. Guillermo Paniagua Purdue University (USA), Prof. C. O. Paschereit TU Berlin (D), Prof. R. Sandberg The University of Melbourne (AUS) and Dr. A. Robertson NREL (USA).Also relevant industry perspectives has been shared thanks to lectures given by personnel of Baker-Hughes and AvioAero.
2022, from 25th April, to 22th May, Fundamentals of Thermo-Acoustic Instabilities online course: Coupling between acoustic waves and flames has become a central issue in the development of many modern combustion systems. This course presents the theoretical background needed to tackle such problems. Details for registration available here: https://cerfacs.fr/fundamentals-of-thermo-acoustic-instabilities/. By attending the course, ESRs can obtain a certificate of participation and success in the final exam. The following session will take place from 17th October, to 4th December, 2022.
2020, 26 November, Workshop: Gender in recruitment Unlike the rest of the network-specific courses and workshops provided for ESRs, the target group for this workshop are the principal investigators. Consistent with the topic of social responsibility representing an essential educational element of INSPIRE and with the life-long learning culture, all principal investigators of the network participated in the workshop. Aim has been to raise awareness of gender issues in recruitment and the workshop has been held during the kick-off meeting and before the recruitment process commencement. This is complementary to the anti-bias actions already established by the human resources of each beneficiary.
