The project "Teen - Teenagers Experience the Empowerment by Numbers - Potenziare il pensiero logico-matematico per educare all'autonomia e alla cittadinanza ragazzi e giovani immigrati che vicono in comunità" has been awarded the grant Polisocial 2017, together with other 6 project out of 31 proposals. In the final evaluation, "Teen" ranked first amongst the other projects.
The project has been presented by Chiara Andrà, Giulio Magli, Nicola Parolini and Marco Verani of our Department, together with Elena Granata and Giovanni Vecchio (DASTU), Tommaso Agasisti (DIG) and Maurizio Zani (DFIS).
PhD students and Post Doctoral scientists positions are available at MOX-Politecnico di Milano in the framework of the ERC Advanced Grant project iHEART "An integrated Heart Model for the simulation of the cardiac function" (2017-2022), P.I. AlfioQuarteroni. Positions are available from October 1st 2017 on.
The goal of the iHEART project is to construct, mathematically analyze, numerically approximate, computationally solve, and validate on clinically relevant cases a mathematically-based integrated heart model for the human cardiac function. The integrated model comprises several core cardiac models – electrophysiology, solid and fluid mechanics, microscopic cellular force generation, and valve dynamics – which are then coupled and finally embedded into the systemic and pulmonary blood circulations. It is a multiscale system of Partial Differential Equations and Ordinary Differential Equations featuring multiphysics interactions among the core models.

Prof. Alfio Quarteroni has received an ERC advanced grant, called iHeart, to set up at MOX a research group on the numerical simulation of the Heart. The project has been funded with 2.35 million Euros and will last for five years. The objective is to develop reliable numerical models of the heart that can provide usable tools for the clinicians.
