ECMI is basically a consortium of institutions and companies although it is also possible for individuals to be members.
A member of ECMI benefits from being part of the European community of mathematicians working on industrial problems – where industry is interpreted as any activity of social or economic relevance. In particular the following opportunities are available:
- The ECMI blog provides an up-to-date interactive forum for European activities in Industrial Mathematics. Each month a different ECMI Institution is featured. Members can post information about events, advertise posts etc.
- The annual ECMI report containing news, articles and case studies is published in hard copy and on line
- ECMI supports a number of Special Interest Groups and information about their activities and how to take part is available via the ECMI blog/website.
- Information about EU funding opportunities is shared and partners can be identified.
- The ECMI Research Conference is held every 2 years and participants from ECMI member institutions get reduced registration.
- ECMI is a promoter of the European network of networks EU-MATHS-IN which offers a wide range of services and information on Mathematics in Industry.
- ECMI oversees the European Study Groups with Industry – currently there are between 6 and 9 held each year in different European countries.
- Students from ECMI member institutions who have completed a mathematical thesis on an industrial topic are eligible to apply for the Wacker Prize (MSc) or the Anile Prize (PhD).
- Students from member institutions can apply to attend the annual ECMI Summer School and Modelling Week.
- Information about courses in industrial mathematics and student exchanges is available.
Currently the subscription rates are:
Academic Institutions: 200 Euros pa
Industrial companies: 500 Euros pa
Individual members: 75 Euros for two years.
