DFG Research Training Group AdONE extended

Financing has been secured for four-and-a-half years

In order to further strengthen scientists in an early stage in their careers the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) has set up 14 new Research Training Groups ("Graduiertenkollegs", GRK). This was decided by the responsible appropriations committee at the beginning of November. From spring 2022 the new GRK will initially be financed with a total of around 76 million Euros for a duration of four-and-a-half years. In addition to the 14 new Research Training Groups the appropriations committee agreed to extend 12 GRK for a further funding period. One of these is the DFG Graduiertenkolleg "Advanced Optimization in a Networked Economy" (AdONE), which is a joint initiative of researchers at the TUM School of Management and the Departments of Informatics and Mathematics. AdONE has been initiated in autumn 2017 and aims to train researchers by developing models and processes and to transfer these into solutions designed to enable efficient use of resources through intelligent planning and control (e.g. shared mobility, resource allocation in IT infrastructure management, operations of airport resources and air cargo prediction).
