Welcome to the CaFE project website!
CaFE is a Marie Skłodowska-Curie Innovative Training Network; a joint research training and doctoral programme, funded by the EU and implemented by a partnership of high profile universities, research institutions, and non-academic organisations that are located in 9 different countries.
16 talented doctoral candidates were recruited by the research-focused organisations of the consortium to develop, improve and validate new state-of-the-art cavitation and surface erosion models against both existing and new experimental data. At the same time, the CaFE project gave the young researchers the opportunity to gain knowledge, skills and expertise but also to create strategic partnerships with leading institutions worldwide, preparing them this way for a successful career, either in the public or the private sector.
CaFE is the acronym of the project “Development and experimental validation of computational models for Cavitating Flows, surface Erosion damage and material loss”. It started on 1st January 2015 and ended on 31st December 2018. However, the dissemination of the research results is an ongoing process. So stay tuned!
