Workshop Mathematics in Industry

December 7, 2023

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 presentations of successful collaborative projects. 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


The seminar will be held in a hybrid mode with both onsite and online presence. Online participation will be possible via Zoom, and the details for connection will be sent to the registered participants prior the event. Onsite participation includes lunch, coffee, and refreshments.
