European Study Group with Industry 2014

University College Dublin, June 30 - July 4, 2014

The 102nd European Study Group with Industry was hosted by University College Dublin, Ireland, 30th June - 4th July 2014. The final reports are available here

ESGI are week-long problem-solving workshops which provide a unique opportunity for interaction between mathematicians, scientists and industry. They bring together leading mathematicians from a wide range of backgrounds to work intensively on real-world problems. We expect to be able to accommodate 4-8 industry problems, which will be tackled by 50-100 academics ranging from PhD students to professors. Originating in Oxford in 1968, ESGI have since been held several times a year across Europe, and were first brought to Ireland by MACSI in 2008.

The full programme and book of projects have now been released.

The format of the workshop is as follows:

Day 1: Industry representatives present their problems to the academics and students

Day 2-4: Academics and students work with industry representatives to solve their problems

Day 5: Academics present their final results

A few weeks after the study group, a report describing in detail the work of each group is written and given to the corresponding industrial partner.
