UTOPIAE- Uncertainty Treatment and Optimisation in Aerospace Engineering
Handling the unknown at the edge of tomorrow

UTOPIAE is a European research and training network looking at cutting edge methods bridging optimisation and uncertainty quantification applied to aerospace systems. The network will run from 2017 to 2021, and is funded by the European Commission through the Marie Skodowska-Curie Actions of H2020.

The National Center for Scientific Research, or CNRS, is a public organization under the responsibility of the French Ministry of Education and Research. As the largest fundamental research organization in Europe, the CNRS carries out research in all fields of knowledge, through ten institutes.


von Karman Institute for Fluid Dynamics
VKI is a non-profit international educational and scientific organisation, hosting three departments (aeronautics and aerospace, environmental and applied fluid dynamics, and turbomachinery & propulsion). It provides post-graduate education in fluid dynamics (research master in fluid dynamics, former “VKI Diploma Course”, doctoral program, short training program and lecture series) and encourages “training in research through research”.

Inria, the French National Institute for computer science and applied mathematics, promotes “scientific excellence for technology transfer and society”. Graduates from the world’s top universities, Inria’s 2,400 employees rise to the challenges of digital sciences.
