Interdisciplinary Training Network in Multi-Actuated Ground Vehicles

iTEAM project is supported by H2020-MSCA-ITN-2015 Marie Sklodowska-Curie Innovative Training Networks.

Ground Vehicle Engineering, both as extremely interdisciplinary research discipline and technological domain, receives a profound impact from increased demand on safe, environment-acceptable and user-oriented intelligent technologies. Nowadays there is a strong trend towards the transformation from traditional cars, trucks and other mobile machines to complex systems interconnected with environment, infrastructure and users through numerous information channels. It made possible emerging of a new technological cluster - multi-actuated ground vehicles (MAGV).

In this respect, the main ITEAM target is to establish and sustainably maintain the European training network with the high grade of interdisciplinarity, which will train strong specialists skilled in research and development of novel technologies in the field of multi-actuated ground vehicles.

The global iTEAM goals are:

  • Advance of European postgraduate education in the area of environment- and user-friendly ground vehicle technologies;
  • Reinforcement of cooperation between academia and industry to improve career perspectives of talented graduates in both public and private sectors;
  • Creation of strong European research and innovation group making determinant contributions to next generations of multi-actuated ground vehicles.

The iTEAM project will provide the first-of-its kind European training network in Ground Vehicles at doctorate level to fill up the niche in private sector and industry with researcher-practitioners. The proposed network will be developed as innovative, multidisciplinary, engineering product-oriented and project-based program to train the scientists by integrating cutting-edge research methods of ground vehicles, electric/mechatronic systems, environmental engineering and applied intelligent control.
