What is EDEM:
EDEM is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie European Industrial Doctorate (EID) network; a joint research training and doctoral programme, funded by the EU and implemented by a partnership of high profile universities, research institutions, and non-academic organisations that are located in 7 EU countries and 4 overseas.
EDEM is the acronym of the project “Experimentally validated DNS and LES approaches for fuel injection, mixing and combustion of dual-fuel engines”. It starts on 1st September 2019 and ends on 30th August 2023. The EDEM network is international (includes beneficiaries and partners from the EU, US, China, S.Korea and UAE), interdisciplinary (mechanical engineering, physics, chemistry, fuels and combustion), intersectoral (includes academic and non-academic institutions) and innovative (addresses topics not studied before).
15 doctoral candidates will be recruited by the research-focused organisations of the consortium to develop new state-of-the-art models for nozzle flow, mixing and combustion of dual-fuel engines and validate them against both existing and new experimental data. At the same time, the EDEM project will give the young researchers the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and expertise but also to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide, preparing them this way for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector.
The project is coordinated by CITY, University of London (Prof. Manolis Gavaises).
