Knowledge Exchange Community Meeting - Industrial Maths in Action

Sep 19, 2017 - Sep 20, 2017

ICMS

Following on from the successful 2015 KE Community Meeting, this meeting is designed for both academic mathematicians and industrial scientists and will focus on how to do industrial maths with a particular emphasis on how to develop contacts between academia and industry and how to ensure that mathematical results are carried through to implementation.

At the previous meeting, the use of mini-study group type activities at various universities as a proven mechanism to enhance industrial collaborations was highlighted. Not all participants at the 2015 meeting, were familiar with this activity so it was agreed the next community meeting would include an example of how this works.  This has been scheduled for Day 2 of the meeting.

Additionally, the meeting will include an update on the Review of knowledge exchange in the mathematical sciences, chaired by Council for Science and Technology member, Professor Philip Bond, has been launched with support from EPSRC and Innovate UK's Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) that is currently underway. For more information on the review see the website.

 

We are delighted to have the support of European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry, ECMI and Knowledge Transfer Network for this meeting.
