MADECIP

Project title:

Development of Research Infrastructure for Disaster Management Based on High Performance Computing

General description:

The objective of the project is to increase the research-development capacity of Babes-Bolyai University of Cluj-Napoca, through the development of disaster management based on high performance computing. Furthermore, new laboratories/research centres will be founded and the existing ones will be updated, with the aim of creating new work places, intensifying interdisciplinary research and optimising international cooperation. 

The MADECIP project is a complex, multidisciplinary project, developed by a consortium of 8 faculties in Babes-Bolyai University: Faculty of Environmental Science and Engineering, Faculty of Economics and Bussiness Administration, Faculty of Mathematics and Informatics, Faculty of Political, Administrative and Communication Sciences, Faculty of Geography, Faculty of Chemistry and Chemical Engineering, Faculty of Biology and Geology.

Duration of the project:

  • 2014-2016.
