Welcome to the website of the POEMS project!

POEMS investigates a variety of physical aspects that boost understanding of specific extreme phases in the evolution of massive stars. The project builds on the interdisciplinary competence of the involved experts in mathematics, physics, chemistry, fluid dynamics and numerics.

POEMS establishes a multidisciplinary, international network by uniting researchers in various states of their scientific career from the Czech Republic, Germany, Belgium, Estonia, United Kingdom, Azerbaijan, Argentina, Brazil, and Chile. Involved institutes are universities, observatories, and research institutes. Secondements between involved institutes lead to efficient knowledge transfer and create synergies between theorists, observers, and modelers.

In addition to the secondments, summer schools, training courses, and workshops will be organized that enhance the visibility of our research results and equip early-stage researchers with the needed skills for their future career.

This project is funded by the European Union
