CIMNE (International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering) will be the Coordinator Institution.
Spanish non-profit research organization created in 1987 as a Consortium between the Generalitat of Catalonia (autonomous government) and the Technical University of Catalonia with UNESCO's support.
CIMNE (ES), International Centre for Numerical Methods in Engineering (leaded by Prof. E. Oñate) is a research centre employing currently some 140 scientists and engineers from different technical fields and nationalities, working in the development and application of numerical methods to a wide class of engineering problems. The research activities of CIMNE cover non linear analysis and safety studies of structures with standard and advanced materials, shape optimization in structural and fluid dynamic problems, numerical simulation of material deformation and forming processes for the manufacturing industry. In the last twenty-year period, CIMNE has taken part in more than 700 R&D projects with the financial support of the European Community and the Spanish Government, among other organizations as well as some Spanish and international enterprises.
