Mathematical scientists needed to solve industry problems
Posted on 21/09/2017
Over the next few months, there are three exciting study group events where mathematical scientists and businesses work together to solve industry problems.
UQ&M Study Group with Industry | University of Warwick | 12 – 15 December 2017
The first one relates to Uncertainty Quantification (UQ), which is the anticipation of uncertainty from the digital design process. The problems to be tackled by the study group attendees will broadly come from companies across manufacturing / engineering design and assessment sectors.
Register now and work on problems from pharma, defence and infrastructure.
Find out more about KTN’s Uncertainty Quantification & Management Special Interest Group (UQ&M SIG) which exists to bring together a community of industrial users and researchers to promote a more UQ&M-savvy design and assessment community.
Energy Systems Study Group with Industry | University of Sussex | 8-10 January 2018
In the new year, the first Mathematics Study Group on Energy Systems will take place at the University of Sussex. The problems to be tackled by the study group attendees will come from small to large companies from the battery design and manufacture sector. These problems (likely to be three) will be announced in due course.
Register now and work on problems across the energy systems area from storage, network supply and integration.
Agri-food Study Group with Industry | International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, Edinburgh | 21-23 February 2018
In February, an Agri-Food study group will tackle problems from SMEs from the Agri-Food sector (covering the span across primary production to food processing). These problems (likely to be three) will be announced in due course.
Register now and work on problems from primary crop production, animal management, food processing, and supply chain issues.
