Industry-academia workshop: “Solving pressing industrial challenges with mathematical modelling”

event

You are warmly invited to the interactive industry-academia workshop which aims to bring together companies from any sector and researchers with a mathematical background (Mathematics, Physics, Engineering, Computer Science). The workshop is organized by the pan-European Mathematics for Industry Network (ΜΙ-ΝΕΤ), the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the Cyprus University of Technology and the British High Commission on the 27th of October, 9.30-12.30 at the premises of the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry, on the 7th floor.

Several successful examples of collaborations between universities and companies will be presented by international and local experts.

The Society is one of the supporters of this workshop. The University of Oxford is one of the worldwide leaders in industry-academia collaborations. Dr Katerina Kaouri, one of our alumni, is in the Organising Committee of the event and she will present at the workshop an Oxford idea, that of the Study Group with Industry. Study Groups with Industry, week-long intensive workshops where researchers work with companies, started in Oxford in 1968 and they have since then been successfully organized in more than 20 countries. Also, one of the invited speakers is Dr Ian Griffiths, Royal Society University Research Fellow at the Oxford Centre for Industrial and Applied Mathematics, who has successfully collaborated for years with the companies Dyson, Pall and Nestle amongst others.

Discussion, networking and brainstorming will follow with the vision to identify and launch more academia-industry collaborations in Cyprus.

The workshop is addressed to: researchers, companies, policy-makers.

You can find more details about the event and also register online here by the 26th of October.

Alternatively, you can register by faxing or emailing this registration form to the Cyprus Chamber of Commerce and Industry.
