Who we are: 

BioIRC is a R&D centre devoted to the development of computational methods and software for various problems in engineering and bioengineering. The research is largely based on the finite element method applied to solids, fluids, modelling of physical fields, multiphysics, and various coupled problems. The solvers are accompanied by state-of-the art computer graphics as well as image processing methods and 3D medical image reconstructions.

Expertise areas:  Biotechnology ,  Embedded systems ,  Real time systems ,  Verification and validation ,  Monitoring and Control Networks ,  Distributed parameter systems ,  System identification ,  Parameter estimation ,  Fuzzy ,  Genetic Algorithms ,  Modelling and model-based engineering
