EUFORIA: Efficient UQ For Optimization in Robust design of Industrial Applications

EUFORIA is funded by IWT within their strategic basic research (SBO) programme. The SBO programme supports high-quality level basic research with a pronounced focus on high-risk, inventive and original research and with a high and strategic valorization potential of the results in Flanders.

The objective of EUFORIA is to develop an efficient methodology for the robust optimization of industrial processes under uncertainty.

The EUFORIA consortium is formed by four universities (VUB, KULeuven, UGent, and Stanford) , one research institute (VKI) and one company (SIRRIS). The project coordination is in the hands of Prof. Chris Lacor and Prof. Ghader Ghorbaniasl. The Users Committee consists of ten companies active in different areas such as heat exchangers, CFD, software and energy engineering.
