Initial Training Networks (ITN) Marie Curie Actions

Within Marie Curie Actions, the European Union is funding Initial Training Networks (ITN) which offer early stage researchers the opportunity to work on innovative projects in multinational, interdisciplinary teams and thus to improve their research skills and enhance their career prospects.

Some of the projects offer the possiblity of obtaining a PhD. An ITN is formed by at least three participants; they can be universities, research centers or companies. At this time, Müller-BBM participates in three ITN-Projects.

FlowAirS: Silent Air Flows in Transport, Buildings and Power Generation
(FP7-PEOPLE-2011-ITN)

As industrial partner, Müller-BBM was responsible for Work Package 6 "Aeroacoustics of noise reducing devices for power plant applications" of the FlowAirS project. The focus lay on investigating the mechanisms of sound generation and attenuation high-end silencers for industrial applications. The aim was to improve existing, practical and effective methods of noise emission prediction by combining knowledge of flew-mechanics and acoustics.

Sonorus - Initial Trianing Network "Urban Sound Planner"
(FP7-PEOPLE-2011-ITN)

Within SONORUS we are in charge of Work Package 6. Sonia Alves as our early stage researcher will report the state-of-the-art in urban sound planning and noise abatement, including elements, tools and action plan methodologies developed within EU projects. The holistic, interdisciplinary approach of the project will be put into practice in a concrete project in a partner city. The results of the project will be made available to the public in a final project presentation.

BATWOMAN
Basic Acoustics Training - & Workprogram on Methodologies for Acoustics - Network
(FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN)

Müller-BBM works on Research Package 2 of the BATWOMAN project – Advanced Modelling of Concert Halls. Winfried Lachenmayr is our Early-Stage-Researcher for this project, his research evaluates the connection between architectural design and listening experience of audience and musicians in concert halls and opera houses. The findings shall be applied to acoustic modelling and simulation as well as to the optimization of architectural acoustical planning processes.
