Mathematics for Industry Network – 2 years on

As the Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET) prepared to launch their 3rd year of events we considered it timely to reflect back on our achievements. Mathematics for Industry Network (MI-NET) was set up as a COST Action in May 2015. Our main objective is to facilitate more effective widespread application of mathematics to all industrial sectors, by […]

European Study Groups with Industry – what’s the point?

In January I attended my first industrial maths study group: focused on agri-food and co-hosted by the Knowledge Transfer Network and the Bath Institute for Mathematical Innovation. Study groups are, usually, an intensive week of brainstorming and problem-solving by mathematicians and industry representatives. The agri-food study group was a condensed format over three days and […]

PhD opportunities – University of Bath

There are two opportunities for fully funded PhD research at the University of Bath, Department of Mathematics. Both PhDs will be in collaboration with Syngenta and will start in October 2017. “Modern statistical techniques for assessing and predicting herbicide performance” led by Vangelis Evangelou  “Mathematical modelling for safe, yet effective, pesticide development and usage” led by Jane Whitein collaboration […]

Bath’s Institute for Mathematical Innovation: model evolution

How can universities better release the potential that mathematics holds as an ‘underpinning technology’? How can we remove the common obstacles that hinder collaborations with external organisations? How do interdisciplinary projects and collaborations themselves benefit mathematics and statistics? These questions are particularly pertinent at the moment due to the review of knowledge exchange in the […]
