Digital and Hardware Solutions and Modeling for the Environment and Life Sciences (NUMEV)


New NUMEV website


NUMEV seeks to harmonize hard and computational sciences approaches to life and environmental sciences and pave the way for emerging interdisciplinary groups with an international profile. Developing the ResearchEducationTransfer dynamics, leading creativity and innovation, will contribute to nowadays main scientific, technical, and economic challenges. In this view, scientific communities are deeply involved in developing their research on complex and multiscale natural or man-made systems. A number of specific research actions should be undertaken to: (i) monitor, quantify and model system properties; (ii) represent, plan and build system knowledge; (iii) control and predict normal and anomalous behaviours; (iv) provide solutions to recognize, face and answer emerging problems; (v) imagine, project and build new concepts and systems. 


The 4 major interdisciplinary challenges related to life and environmental sciences define the main NUMEV scientific objectives:

·      Observing, Characterizing, Modeling systems.

·      Extracting and Representing data.

·      Developing Computational /Algorithmic Methods for large data sets.

·      Conceiving Computational & Mathematical Representations of systems.

The expected outcomes of NUMEV project are:

·     to increase the excellence and international visibility of research within its laboratories;

·     to ensure the excellence of sciences and education (especially at the PhD and master levels)

·     to create new synergies between research communities and economic world.


NUMEV stands at the crossroads of multi-disciplinary activities and skills, a position that makes it ideally suited to provide a powerful and effective development and structuring tool to MIPS (Mathematics – Informatics – Physics – Systems) scientific community.
