Focusing Expertise - Shaping the Future
In the Jülich Aachen Research Alliance (JARA), RWTH Aachen University and Forschungszentrum Jülich pool their outstanding expertise in five research sections, a JARA-Center and four JARA-Instituts.These common efforts open up new research opportunities and facilitate projects that would not be attainable for either of the partners on their own. Furthermore, their attention is always focused on the grand challenges facing society.


The German Research Foundation (DFG) has approved the applications from RWTH for continued funding of three DFG Research Training Groups. The two research groups "Modern Inverse Problems: From Geometry to Data to Models and Applications" and "Multi-Senses-MultiScales: New Approaches to the Elucidation of Neural Multisensory Integration" are coordinated by JARA members Prof. Marek Behr and Prof. Marc Spehr, respectively.

After being a virtual event last year, the international conference for High Performance Computing, Networking, Storage and Analysis will this year take place from November 13 - 18, 2022, in hybrid form in Dallas, Texas, USA.
This year's theme is "HPC accelerates." Computing and processing data at peak performance is the foundation of High Performance Computing. For research, industry, and business, the provision of exascale systems with even higher computing power is therefore highly relevant.

Experts of FZJ and RWTH discuss the potential of quantum computing for computational engineering. When will qubit technology be ready for modern simulation science? What are the challenges that need to be overcome? What is the expected gain and which tasks will benefit in particular? Will quantum computing determine the next generation of HPC simulations?
The panel discussion provides a platform of exchange and aims at identifying future cooperation opportunities between both communities.
