The overall goal of the SYNERGY project is to overcome the
limitations of the current initial-stage research in multiobjective
optimization at the Jožef Stefan Institute (JSI), Ljubljana, Slovenia,
where efficiency measures have only been explored at a very small scale
and with no collaboration with other partners.
To that end, JSI initiates this project with two high-profile research
institutions with complementary expertise, Université des sciences et
technologies de Lille (USTL), France, and Cologne University of Applied
Sciences (CUAS), Germany. While USTL is a leading partner in
parallelisation on large-scale heterogeneous architectures, CUAS
provides expertise in surrogate modelling and its deployment in
The project addresses three core objectives:
- improve JSI excellence and unleash its research and innovation
potential through training in parallelisation and surrogate modelling,
and aiding organisation of workshops that will foster discovery of new
ways of combining the two methods;
- raise the research profile of JSI staff and broaden its recognition
through networking that will result in knowledge transfer, joint
publications and future research projects;
- increase the overall research and innovation potential of Slovenia
by disseminating the acquired knowledge to other Slovenian research
organisations, and deploying it in future applied projects.
