The Francqui Foundation in Belgium awards yearly International Chairs to scholars who excel in their research.
Prof. Rodney Fox received the International Francqui Chair for 2015-2016, based on a proposal made by a network led by Prof. Guy Marin of Ghent University and including Free University of Brussels, Catholic University of Louvain, the von Karman Institute of Fluid Dynamics, the Belgian Section of the Combustion Institute and the Belgian Nuclear Research Center (SCK-CEN).
The Francqui program associated with the Chair promotes inter-university collaboration to stimulate scientific research and higher education interchange in Belgium. As a part of this program, a one-week intensive course with selected colleagues of Prof. Rodney Fox, has been organised by the Belgian Section of the Combustion Institute, University of Ghent, Free University of Brussels and the Catholic University of Louvain. Among the speakers will be IFRF’s AFRC Chairman Professor Phil Smith of the University of Utah.
The focus of the course is on bridging scales in modelling and simulation of reacting and non-reacting flows.
The course will take place at the Free University of Brussels from January 23 to 27, 2017.
