Who we are
Learning to Optimise
ECOLE, is an Innovative Training Network (ITN) for early stage researchers (ESRs) coordinated by the University of Birmingham. It is based on novel synergies between nature inspired optimisation and machine learning. The training programme will be targeted at the automotive industry, but the skill set of the early-stage researchers (ESRs) will be equally valuable to other fast-moving, innovative industries. This four year programme will yield a new generation of high achieving, early stage researchers who will be provided with the transferable skills necessary for thriving careers in emerging and rapidly developing industrial areas.
