Centres of Excellence
The Research Council of Finland grants Centre of Excellence status to scientifically high-level research communities that have the capacity for renewal and high societal impact.
LUT is involved in two Centres of Excellence.
Uncertainty Quantification and Inverse Problems
Inverse problems occur in many fields of science, such as climate models, medial imaging, image processing, mathematical economics, astronomy, and geophysics. An inverse problem usually turns a conventional scientific problem upside down.
LUT's research group is part of the Centre of Excellence of Inverse Modelling and Imaging (2018–2025) of the Research Council of Finland.
High-speed Electromechanical Energy Conversion Systems
The world is electrifying at an increasing pace. Electrification is present in transportation, industrial processes and even entire energy systems. The electrification of all sectors of society is essential in order to achieve zero-emission targets and ultimately to end the use of fossil fuels.
The project is one of the Research Council of Finland's Centres of Excellence for 2022–2029.
The Research Council of Finland’s Flagship Programme supports high-quality research and increases its economic and societal impact. The Flagships represent an effective mix of close cooperation with business and society, adaptability and a strong commitment from host organisations.
LUT is involved in one Flagship.
Flagship of Advanced Mathematics for Sensing, Imaging and Modelling (FAME)
LUT University's applied mathematics team is involved in the Flagship of Advanced Mathematics for Sensing, Imaging and Modelling (FAME), which is coordinated by the University of Eastern Finland.
The aim of the project is to improve global well-being by developing applied mathematics and physics methods for the benefit of health care, green industry, and environmental sustainability.
