The Zuse Institute Berlin bids farewell to the participants of this year's G-RIPS program. Eleven students from the USA and Europe have been at Zuse Institute for two months since June, 25 to work in three teams with one of the following cooperation partners of the MODAL research campus, respectively: 1000Shapes GmbH, DB Fernverkehr AG and Open Grid Europe GmbH. The projects give the students the opportunity to access and use industrial data and show their skills in the fields of data analysis, optimization and machine learning.

G-RIPS stands for Graduate-Level Research in Industrial Projects for Students. The annual program is organized jointly by the Research Campus MODAL and the Institute for Pure and Applied Mathematics (IPAM) of the University of California, Los Angeles (UCLA).
