Workshop Mathematics in Industry

December 11, 2019

Institute of Mathematics of the Czech Academy of Sciences, Žitná 25, Prague


The aim of the workshop

The aim of the workshop is to foster cooperation between industry and mathematicians working in academia. There will be 5 presentations of successful collaborative projects. Most presentations will consist of a pair of talks given by a mathematician and a representative of industry. Besides mathematical and industrial perspective the speakers are encouraged to describe the genesis and evolution of their project as well as gained experiences and benefits of mutual collaboration.


The workshop is organized by the Institute of Mathematics, Czech Academy of Sciences and In parallel with the workshop, there will be the annual meeting of the European council of the network EU-MATHS-IN, which aims to leverage the impact of mathematics on innovations in key technologies by enhanced communication and information exchange between and among the involved stakeholders on an European level. The workshop will be followed by the annual meeting of the Czech network EU-MATHS.IN.CZ.
