The TIMES doctoral network merges different areas of expertise within first-principles computational and theoretical approaches of high accuracy and predictive power, to improve existing methods for incorporating nonequilibrium dynamics in condensed matter physics.

TIMES integrates academic and non-academic groups across Europe and is training the new generation of scientists who will devise novel theoretical and computational frameworks for simulating non-equilibrium phenomena and acquire experience in associated industrial applications. A particular emphasis will be put on the study of correlated structural dynamics, coherent light-matter interaction, and dissipative phenomena.



Training novel theoretical and computational frameworks for simulating non-equilibrium phenomena
  • Combination of different methodologies and theories to simulate electron and atoms dynamics at distinct timescales.
  • Training in High-Performance Computing and first principles methods.
  • Integrate theoretical research on ultrafast phenomena with experimental activities.
  • Close cooperation with industry partners to facilitate the realization of novel concepts, applications, and technologies.
  • Research stays across the network.
