European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry
In 2010, Applied Mathematics Department joined European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) and since then has taken an active part in its work, introducing European standards and approaches into education for applied mathematics. Since 2012/2013 academic year, undergraduates have been trained via renewed curriculum entirely satisfying ECMI requirements. In particular, such innovative form of education as semester applied modeling seminar has been introduced and maintained.
Leading members of Consortium regularly come to the KPI with lectures and trainings. Among them are Prof. Magnus Fontes, Lund University (Sweden) (May 25, 2010) and Prof. Matti Heiliö, Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland) (May 17, 2012).
Department students participate on a regular basis in various events hosted by the Consortium:
- in 2010, graduates Sergiy Siryk and Igor Tereshchenko participated in Modelling Week (Milan, Italy) run by ECMI. The results of the research work were published in appropriate scholarly periodicals
- in August, 2012, graduates Olexandra Dmytrenko, Taras Slipets, and Igor Zarvanskiy participated in the Summer School and ECMI Modelling Week (Dresden, Germany)
- in July, 2015, undergraduate Anastasiia Shcherbak participated in the ECMI Modelling Week (Lisboa, Portugal) and obtained an appropriate certificate
Horizon 2020 Collaboration
Since 2015, Applied Mathematics Department is a member of the AMMODIT (Approximation Methods for Molecular Modelling and Diagnosis Tools) project, a part of Horizon 2020, the EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation (2014–2020).
Project duration: 08/01/2015–07/31/2019.
The maximum grant amount is EUR 823,500.00.
AMMODIT brings together research teams from the EU (Germany, Italy, and Austria) and Ukraine (Kyiv, Donetsk, Slovyansk) in the area of applied mathematics with emphasis on medical and life science applications.
The goal is joint research in six research tasks concerning:
- the study of mathematical methods for Magnetic Particle Imaging
- entropy-like measures and quantification of system complexity
- coarse-grain modelling for (bio)polymers
- diagnostic tools for cardiac surgery
- regularization methods for causality detection
- meta-learning approach to Nocturnal Hypoglycemia prediction
During the project:
- in July-August, 2015, Department Head O. Chertov and PhD student M. Aleksandrova went on secondment to Johann Radon Institute for Computational and Applied Mathematics (RICAM) (Linz, Austria)
- in December, 2015, Assistant Professor I. Tereshchenko went on secondment to Politecnico di Milano (Milano, Italy)
International Academic Relations
Ukrainian students are getting more interested in learning abroad. Due to friendly foreign relations of the department, providing access to joint international education schemes, these interests are becoming easier to accomplish. In 2009, the contract with École Polytechnique (Paris, France) for the training of masters was concluded. In 2010, the same agreement was concluded with the Université du Maine (France). In 2012, at the initiative of Applied Mathematics Department, treaty on Master training by double diploma programs was signed between KPI and Lappeenranta University of Technology (Finland).
In the past years, the following undergraduates, graduates, and faculty benefited from the international activity of the department:
- graduate student M. Kozlenko has been studying for two years (2010–2012) in École Polytechnique, and at the same time he’s been studying at our department
- undergraduate student D. Perlova has been studying for a term (2012) in the Warsaw University of Technology (Poland) under the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 EWENT program
- graduate student P. Vishevsky has been studying for two years (2013–2015) in the Lappeenranta University of Technology under the double diploma program
- graduate student Ye. Savin has been studying for two years (2013–2015) in the Université du Maine under the double diploma program
- graduate student I. Korshunova has been studying for two years (2013–2015) in Universiteit Gent (Belgium) under the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 EUROEAST program
- graduate student A. Sylenko is studying for two years (2014–2016) in the Aalto University (Finland) under the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 EUROEAST program
- in June-August, 2015, Assistant Lecturers S. Siryk and I. Tereshchenko went on secondment to Politecnico di Milano (Italy) as a part of EU-Ukrainian Mathematicians for Life Sciences project
- in October 2015–March 2016, Assistant Lecturer D. Tavrov was a Fulbright Visiting Researcher at Carnegie Mellon University (the U. S.)
- PhD student M. Aleksandrova is studying under the double PhD program at the NTUU “KPI” and Université de Lorraine (France)
International Scientific Conference “Intelligent Analysis of Information”
Since 2001, Applied Mathematics Department has been hosting annual T. A. Taran International scientific conference “Intelligent Analysis of Information.” Conference founders include Russian Association for Artificial Intelligence, publishing house “Prosvita.” Participating countries are Ukraine, Russia, Belarus, and Poland. Conference proceedings are published after the conference.
