Student Modelling Weeks

By Niall McInerney Study groups with industry can be an intimidating environment for early stage researchers. The unstructured nature of solving a real world problem in the company of Professors can be incredibly daunting, and often an MSc or early PhD student is not yet equipped with the skills necessary to contribute to the problems […]

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 […]

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 […]
