ENIGMA ITN ( European training Network for in situ imaGing of dynaMic processes in heterogeneous subsurfAce environments) aims at training a new generation of young researchers in the development of innovative methods for imaging process dynamics in subsurface hydrosystems, in order to enhance understanding and predictive modelling capacities and to transfer these innovations to the economic sector.
The 15 young PhD students trained within the network contribute to develop the spatial representation of subsurface heterogeneity, fluxes, chemical reactions and microbial activity, through the integration of data and approaches from geophysics, hydrology, soil physics, and biochemistry.
The network ENIGMA gathers 21 partners (15 academic and 6 industrial) from 8 European countries.
Each of the 15 PhD students conducts the research work in 2 or 3 institutions, in collaboration with the industrial partners.
Started in January 2017, ENIGMA ITN will run until December 2020.
