Training young researchers to create waves in imaging

From understanding earthquakes to medical imaging, wave-based imaging is already extremely valuable. If the imaging could be done at an even higher resolution, it would be even more valuable. An EU-funded project is training 15 young researchers in the techniques involved, and creating a truly multidisciplinary network in the process.

Alongside training, the WAVES project will stimulate knowledge exchange between seismologists, bio-medical imagers and acousticians, as well as researchers from the public and private sectors. This will lead to a critical mass of expertise and consolidate the study of acoustic / elastic wave propagation and wave-based imaging.

The early-stage researchers enrolled in the training will have access to courses offered by the six academic partners, as well as WAVES-specific short courses intended to teach development skills that maximise future academic and private sector employability.

The researchers will all have at least one secondment, and most will have at least one industrial secondment.

Network-wide workshops complete the training, covering topics such as advances in imaging, industrial perspectives, the application of noise correlation in imaging, and 3D printing. The young researchers will present their research findings at the workshops, and discuss their implications. They will thus develop the presentation and discussion skills required for a career in science, but not necessarily taught during traditional university courses.

The majority of research activities carried out by WAVES researchers involve new interactions between laboratory experiments in physical acoustics (which are relevant to seismology as well as biology, biomedical imaging, acoustics, etc.), and applications using real-world seismological data at all scales. One of the WAVES objectives is to encourage links between these two disciplines.

To restrict search results to articles in the Information Centre, i.e. this site, use this search box rather than the one at the top of the page.

After searching, you can expand the results to include the whole Research and Innovation web site, or another section of it, or all Europa, afterwards without searching again.

Please note that new content may take a few days to be indexed by the search engine and therefore to appear in the results.
