Between 5 and 6 October 2022, Professor Paolo Carloni, director of the Institute for Computational Biomedicine (IAS-5/INM-9) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich, Germany, visited the University of Bucharest.
The visit resulted in a series of scientific discussions with academic and research staff members from the Faculty of Biology and the Faculty of Physics.
The main goal of this visit was to explore and identify common interests for future research and teaching in the broad field of computational life sciences, particularly for cutting-edge applications of high-performance computing and exascale computing to address fundamental scientific questions.
An important outcome of the discussions with Prof. Carloni is a joint plan to organize an international workshop at the University of Bucharest on super-computing for life sciences and to develop a long-term partnership to foster scientific cooperation with the Institute of Computational Biology (IAS-5/INM-9) of the Forschungszentrum Jülich.
The visit of professor Carloni to the University of Bucharest was organized in the frame of the partnership between the Academic Diaspora Platform from the Romanian Embassy in Berlin and the University of Bucharest.
