Computational Science (LASTU)


The Computational Science Academy Programme (LASTU, 2010–2016) combined the development of computational methods with the study of complex and scientifically important issues. The application of computational methods requires not only methodological skills, but also an in-depth understanding of each field of application. Close multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary collaboration among experts in different fields was therefore one of the typical characteristics of computational science.

The programme comprised both computational and data-oriented lines of research in all disciplines, including biology, physics, chemistry, linguistics, health research, economics, engineering and the social sciences. 

The aim was to address computationally intensive problems and fundamental issues in science and engineering; topical examples include climate change, energy issues, health and wellbeing, the security of global information networks, and the management of the global economy.
