  • Abstract: The present MYPLANET project responds to the first FP7-call “PEOPLE-INITIAL-TRAINING-ITN-2007-1” published by the European Commission. This collaborative initial training network represents a European initiative to train a new generation of engineers in the field of high performance computing applied to the numerical combustion simulation, energy conversion processes and related atmospheric pollution issues. Indeed, the project is based on the recognised lack on the European level of highly skilled engineers who are equally well-trained in both combustion technologies and high-performance computing (HPC) techniques. Thus the MYPLANET project will clearly contribute to the structuring of existing high-quality initial research training capacities in fluid mechanics and the HPC field through combining both public and private (industrial) sectors. The participation of industrial partners in the training of the researchers will directly expose these industries to high performance computing, which will have a very favourable impact on the quality and efficiency of their activities. Reciprocally, the research community will learn more about the mid and long term industrial challenges which will enable the research partners to initiate new activities in order to anticipate and address these industrial requirements.
