The aim of the research project "Data-Integrated Simulation Science" (DISS) is to integrate aspects and methods of data science into simulation technology in such a way that new application areas can be opened up and simulation methods can be systematically developed further.
The vision behind this is to develop simulation technology from isolated approaches to a holistic system science that also enables the direct integration of data at all levels. This is intended to achieve interaction between the virtual simulation world and the real world. In the research alliance "Data-Integrated Simulation Science" (DISS), fundamental methods are being developed that bridge the gap between data and simulation research. Such a research approach is necessary in numerous socially and environmentally relevant areas, for example in modern energy supply. Energy supply is subject to large fluctuations due to the use of renewable energy sources. The new methods developed within the project will be applied specifically to thermochemical energy storage and near-surface groundwater.
The two universities, Stuttgart with its Center for Simulation Science (SC SimTech), and Heidelberg with the Interdisciplinary Center for Scientific Computing (IWR) combine their competencies in the research area of simulation science and scientific computing in this research alliance.
