Czech Technical University in Prague – Klokner Institute

The Klokner Institute, part of the University, is a research institution with an outstanding position in the following fields:

  • Theory of structural safety and risk assessment,
  • Structural diagnostics based on experimental mechanics, numerical analysis and verification of numerical models,
  • Material research of concrete, steel, masonry and composite materials, optimisation of material properties and determination of their functional characteristics,
  • Experimental analysis of actual properties of existing construction materials,
  • Durability of structures, assessment of environmental degradation processes and optimisation of interventions.

So far the researchers of the Klokner Institute have participated (as leaders or co-leaders) in international projects in the framework of the Copernicus, Leonardo da Vinci, Jean Monnet and Growth programs, in more than 30 projects supported by the Czech Science Foundation, in 4 research plans of the Ministry of Education, Youth and Sports of the Czech Republic and in several research projects of the Ministry of Industry and Trade of the Czech Republic. More than 800 scientific publications have been elaborated and several patents have been registered in the framework of these projects during the last 5 years. Most of the projects and publications have been evaluated by reviewers as outstanding.

University of Live Sciences in Aas – Institute for Mathematics and Technology

The Norwegian University of Live Sciences (UMB) comprises 8 departments. The University is recognised as a leading international centre of knowledge, focused on higher education and research within environmental- and biosciences. Together with other research institutes established at Aas, UMB provides state-of-the-art knowledge based on a broad range of disciplines. These include Applied Mathematics and Statistics, Physics, Spatial Planning, Environment and Natural Resources, Landscape Architecture, Civil Engineering and Building Science.

In total, UMB has some 2 600 students of which about 300 are PhD students. Annually, the University confers about 40 PhD degrees upon successful candidates. Of the 870 University staff, more than half hold scientific positions.

Recent research projects include:

  • Rural building heritage – transformation of old rural buildings
  • Building Information modelling and climatic adaptation of buildings
  • Farm buildings in the arctic – climatic adaptation of farm buildings.
