The SpaRTaN Initial Training Network will train a new generation of interdisciplinary researchers in sparse representations and compressed sensing, contributing to Europe’s leading role in scientific innovation.

By bringing together leading academic and industry groups with expertise in sparse representations, compressed sensing, machine learning and optimisation, and with an interest in applications such as hyperspectral imaging, audio signal processing and video analytics, this project will create an interdisciplinary, trans-national and inter-sectorial training network to enhance mobility and training of researchers in this area.

SpaRTaN is funded under the FP7-PEOPLE-2013-ITN call and is part of the Marie Curie Actions — Initial Training Networks (ITN) funding scheme: Project number - 607290
