IRIS to lead the InSPiRE project

13.12.2017

The InSPiRE project aims to boost the development of open-source simulation software. Institutes and universities in Norway, Germany and France are to collaborate closely – also in order to integrate relevant industrial partners.

Senior Research Scientist at IRIS, Robert Klöfkorn is leading the project and explains that the main goal of InSPiRE is to establish a partnership in research and education. This will result in a joint workshop and summer school series and a joint course at the Universities of Stavanger and Bergen in collaboration with the International Research Institute of Stavanger, and the Universities Heidelberg and Stuttgart, Universite Cote d'Azur as well as the French Geological Survey (BRGM).
 
Education and software based platforms
The primary focus of the project is to establish research and education based on software platforms that are closely linked together and will greatly benefit all involved partners for future joint project proposals. Secondarily, the project also aims to:

- Strengthen collaborative networks between industry and academia
- Increased value creation by superior simulation capabilities
- Facilitate education and knowledge sharing through better mobility
- Create an arena for generation of research and innovation projects especially towards EU programs
- Increased utilization of research e-infrastructure in Norway, Germany, and France.
 
An excited Robert Klöfkorn says: “Successful digitalization efforts will likely be based on open-source software solutions since these are naturally easy to adapt to new challenges. They ease cross-institution and cross-company collaboration and accelerate technology and innovation transfer from research institutions to industry partners. We at IRIS are looking very much forward to leading this project.”

The InSPiRE is part of the INTPART program. Read more here.
