Deutsch-Französisches Doktorandenkolleg

International, Studium, Forschung |

The doctoral college (2022-2025), funded by the Franco-German University, is aimed at PhD students from Germany, France and the Netherlands working on the development and application of structured, energy-based methods for modeling, numerical approximation and control of multiphysical systems. It builds on the long-standing collaboration between research groups in the participating countries, provides an institutional framework for structured doctoral training, and promotes the mobility of young researchers by providing financial support for research stays in the partner countries.

Doctoral Workshops and Mobility

The main pillars of the doctoral college are the support of doctoral mobility (600 € per month) and half-yearly workshops organized by (in alphabetical order): Sören Hohmann (Karlsruhe), Birgit Jacob (Wuppertal), Paul Kotyczka (Munich), Yann Le Gorrec (Besançon), Bernhard Maschke (Lyon), Denis Matignon (Tolouse), Jacquelien Scherpen (Groningen), Hans Zwart (Twente).

The kick-off workshop will take place in the frame of the 2nd Spring School on Theory and Applications of Port-Hamiltonian Systems, Frauenchiemsee, 20-25 March 2022.


The doctoral college is coordinated by Paul Kotyczka (Technical University of Munich) and Bernhard Maschke (Université Claude Bernard Lyon 1) with Jacquelien Scherpen (Rijksuniversiteit Groningen) as partner in the Netherlands and supported by the Franco-Bavarian University Cooperation Center BayFrance at TUM.
