New partners: Dashh and HAW Hamburg

In Hamburg, the signs are pointing to Data Science: Following the award of the North German Science Prize 2020 to DASHH, training at the Graduate School is now being strengthened through further cooperation with HAW Hamburg.

The DASHH Helmholtz Graduate School for the Structure of Matter is not only proud to receive the North German Science Award 2020, but also a new cooperation partner: the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences (HAW Hamburg)

At DASHH, doctoral students are trained to work in both applied and basic research on the topics of particle physics, structure of matter, materials science, structural biology, computer science and applied mathematics. Therefore, the partners of the graduate school are just as numerous as the research perspectives at DASHH: In addition to large research institutions, first and foremost DESY, the Helmholtz Centre Geesthacht and the Helmholtz Centre for Infection Research, the Max Planck Institute for Structure and Dynamics of Matter and the European XFel, Hamburg universities are also partners in the doctoral training at DASHH: the University of Hamburg, the Technical University and the Helmut Schmidt University. This circle is now expanding, as four computer science professors from the Hamburg University of Applied Sciences have now also been appointed to DASHH.

The computer scientists from HAW Hamburg teach and conduct research in the following areas of focus: Prof. Marina Tropmann-Frick  is a data analyst with a focus on modeling, engineering and mining; her colleague Prof. Peer Stelldinger develops algorithms for machine learning. Prof. Jan Sudeikat  researches practical problems in the development of adaptive (control) systems, while Prof. Thomas C. Schmidt  is an expert in distributed sensing and data preprocessing in the Internet of Things. At the DASHH Graduate School, the HAW Hamburg researchers plan to conduct interdisciplinary PhD projects in data science, completing the team of nearly 70 Principal Investigators at DASHH.

Prof. Dr. Peter Wulf, Vice President for Research, Transfer and International Affairs at HAW Hamburg, is pleased about the future cooperation with DASHH: "I congratulate my colleagues on this recognition of their achievements in this field of the future and am very pleased about the excellent opportunities this will provide for supporting young scientists in their doctoral projects."

The Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science, to which the four researchers belong, is the largest faculty at HAW Hamburg and educates around 6000 students in four departments and 21 degree programs. It deals with important social topics such as the mobility of the future, digitalization or sustainable energy supply. The cooperation with HAW also expands the scientific education at DASHH with new research approaches.
