Dedication to the Future
The Fraunhofer Institute for Algorithms and Scientific Computing SCAI combines know-how in mathematical and computational methods, with a focus on the development of innovative algorithms and their take-up in industrial practice – bringing benefits for customers and partners.
SCAI‘s research fields in Computational Science include machine learning and data analysis, optimization, multiphysics, energy network evaluation, virtual material design, multiscale methods, high performance computing, and computational finance.
In the field of bioinformatics, SCAI offers its customers comprehensive services in information extraction (text mining). Here, the most important application field is the modelling of neurodegenerative diseases.
Connections to university research are established through the chair of Prof. Dr. Michael Griebel at the University of Bonn. SCAI also cooperates with the Bonn-Aachen International Center for Information Technology (B-IT) and the Bonn-Rhein-Sieg University of Applied Sciences.
The annual budget of Fraunhofer SCAI is around 11 million euros. The networking in national and international research projects ensures the alignment of offers with leading standards.
