overall objective:

  • develop an educational and research framework for the development of mid-frequency CAE techniques for NVH analysis

    scientific and technological objectives:

  • bridging the mid-frequency analysis gap

    • cross-fertilization of currently fragmented research activities

  • industrial applicability of various methods

    • bridging the gap between academia and industry

  • focus on noise and vibration analysis (in transportation/aerospace industry)

  • build up and disseminate mid-frequency knowledge to the larger EU community

  • developing a platform/community for mid-frequency PhD research

Mc itn mid frequency some winning features of the proposal
MC-ITN ‘Mid-Frequency’ – some ‘winning’ features of the proposal

  • reduction of fragmentation on a topic of European relevance

  • in line with research topics in top-down Collaborative Research Calls

  • strong interaction industry-research centres-academia

  • relevant university partners

  • relevant industrial partners and active involvement

  • clearly stipulated training/ToK programme

  • detailed recruitment policy

  • management expertise of the coordinator

  • fellow PhD trajectories


Mc est rtn itn lessons learnt during the projects
MC-EST-RTN-ITN – lessons learnt during the projects

  • recruitment is key!!!

  • eligibility criteria are tight and evolving

  • embed a management plan for solving recruitment issues

  • training of the Fellow is a crucial project outcome

  • consortium agreement is not mandatory

  • 100% funding, also for industry

  • initiate long-lasting relationships

  • recruitment is key!!!

We gratefully acknowledge the European Commission for their support of the Marie Curie program, including the running FP7 Marie Curie ITN project 214909 “Mid-Frequency”
