Best Training for Green and Silent Mobility (GRESIMO)

Objective

Engineering for future mobility must be inspired by ecology and economy to enable green and silent vehicles. Current university based education is focusing on classical fields like mechanical engineering on one side with some aspects of Noise, Vibration & Harshness (NVH) and Light Weight Design (LWD) or like electrical engineering covering aspects of “Electrification” & “Hybridisation” on the other side.
The proposed GRESIMO project (Best Training for Green and Silent Mobility) aims to bring together early stage researchers and experienced specialists from across industry and academia in Europe covering NVH, LWD and H/E disciplines to form a broad range of professional background. Recent research underlines the strong interaction and shows the often conflicting demands of these 3 topics. Consequently, an optimum for future vehicle development requires an interdisciplinary education in this triangle of topics.
GRESIMO focus is to motivate and encourage early stage researchers for scientific work in the new interdisciplinary research fields NVH+LWD, LDW+H/E and H/E+NVH. The fellows will be trained and supported in their phase of doctoral thesis to find innovative PhD topics as well as to receive specific education in theoretical and practical trainings. The education will comprise existing lectures in the partner network as well as training specifically developed for the interdisciplinary needs.
GRESIMO is formed by a group of participating hosts, combining leading education and research institutions as well as industrial enterprises in 6 countries of the EC. Thus the engineers will participate in both the scientific research work and the practical application of new methods of testing and simulation. They will profit from extended international knowledge after their academic education when starting to work in the industry. Furthermore, the industry will gain from the specific training of the young researchers for the requirements to develop green and silent vehicle.
