CRC 1114 Scaling Cascades in Complex Systems

The Integrated Research Training Group (IRTG) is a structured training and support program for the PhD students of the CRC 1114. PhD students work on their research projects under the supervision of two scientific advisors from different disciplines, and gain additional knowledge and skills at CRC schools, PhD workshops and soft skills courses. A special focus is laid on skills for interdisciplinary collaboration. In addition, PhD students receive support for their career development in or outside the academia. They also benefit from being a part of the international network of scientists the CRC is connected to.


Our primary aim is to achieve methodological developments for the modelling and simulation of complex processes involving cascades of scales derived from prototypical challenges in the natural sciences.Our secondary aim is to indeed tackle these prototypical application challenges and demonstrate that theory and methods developed in the CRC1114 can go all the way to making relevant impact in application fields such as molecular and cellular processes, moist atmospheric dynamics, and geophysics.
