MultiSim2 Sandpit (July & September 2021)

MultiSim is an EPSRC funded project that aims to create a new generation of productive models capable of handling complex multiscale and multiphysics problems, characterised by uncertain and incomplete information.  As the latest event in that quest we will be hosting an online research sandpit during early July with a follow-up activity in September.

Collaboratively with Becky Steliaros from Research in Focus Ltd ( we’ve developed a multi part virtual programme that we hope will generate some really exciting and transformative proposals whilst making the process of working together as effective and efficient as possible.  Our overall aim for the sandpit is to generate high quality, programme/large grant applications across a range of topics to be submitted by the end of 2021. We also hope a range of smaller projects, new collaborations, or other fruitful links will emerge from interactions.  Please note to be eligible to participate in this event you must be capable of holding/being named as a co-author on UKRI research grants.

Various elements of the sandpit will take in participants own time and then live during ½ day online group discussions on Monday 5th July and Thursday 8th July; there will also be a follow-up meeting on a date to be determined in early September. 

The sandpit will be led by Prof Claudia Mazzà, the Principal Investigator for MultiSim2 and individual discussion sessions will be led by MultiSim2’s co-investigators: Prof Damien Lacroix, Dr Pinaki Bhattacharya, Dr Enrico Dall’Ara, Prof Viskan Kadirkamanathan and Dr Shannon Li. The following starter themes are proposed for discussion:

  • Multiscale modelling and co-morbidities
  • Ageing, sarcopenia and fracture risk
  • Bone Metastasis
  • Multiscale models and Artificial Intelligence
  • Developmental Biomechanics
