Congratulations Cordian Riener!

TFS and BFS Mathematics Starting Grant winner Cordian Riener recently were awarded a partnership grant in Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks (ITN).

The consortium of scientists will investigating the development of new algebraic and geometric methods combined with computer algebra techniques for global non-linear optimization problems. Their applications are, in particularly, in smarter cities challenges, urban traffic management, water network management, energy flow control, or environmental monitoring.

The consortium will be funded with approximately 40 MNOK from  the Marie Sklodowska-Curie actions programme of the European Union for a period of four years starting in 2019. UiT is expected to receive 3 MNOK.  Read more at
