EuHIT is a consortium that aims at integrating cutting-edge European facilities for turbulence research across national boundaries, in order to significantly advance the competitive edge of European turbulence research with special focus on providing the knowledge for technological innovation and for addressing grand societal challenges.
Who we are?
Current members of EuHIT include 25 research institutes and 2 industrial partners from 10 European countries "and one of the research institutes is the Department of Aerodynamics and Fluid Mechanics at BTU Cottbus". Total 14 cutting-edge turbulence research infrastructures, most of which are developed on national funds and are run by EuHIT member institutes, consist the material basis of EuHIT. These infrastructures, together with the knowledge developed upon them, are interconnected by a Networking program and Joint Research Activities within EuHIT.
The present coordinator of EuHIT is Eberhard Bodenschatz (Max Planck Institute for Dynamics and Self-Organization, Göttingen, Germany), who is assisted by the Steering Committee and is overseen by the General Assembly.
What are the expected impacts?
The creation of EuHIT itself represents an optimization in community actions. EuHIT will change the way turbulence research facilities operate, evolve and interact with each other and with users from academia and industry. EuHIT has the promise to optimize the research facilities for the future and it will have major impacts on innovation in European R&D in e.g., Energy, Environment, and Transportation.
