Propose a problem for scrutiny
If you have a problem of a mathematical/statistical nature which you think would be appropriate for the 2018 European Study Group with Industry to work on then please contact the Institute for Mathematical Innovation on firstname.lastname@example.org or +44 (0)1225 385 185 for an informal conversation.
If your problem is accepted, we will work with you to put together a formal problem description which will be distributed to all participants ahead of the study group. We will also help you formulate your problem within a mathematical framework. The description is usually one or two sides of A4, but can be longer if required.
On the first day of the workshop, the problem presenter will give a presentation on their problem, usually lasting around 30 minutes, including time for questions from the audience.
A crucial aspect of the Study Groups is the interaction between the mathematical modellers and the problem presenters.
As the team of academic experts begin to analyse a given problem in depth, they are likely to have questions to ask the presenters.
We therefore warmly invite company representatives to take part in the full week-long programme to work alongside the academic participants.
The cost of bringing a problem to the study group is £8,500 plus VAT per problem. This covers organisation and running costs including support with the initial problem preparation, and delivery of the final project report. Please contact Professor Chris Budd for more information.
For academics and postgraduate students
Join the group of problem solvers
Study groups provide a unique opportunity for academics from a wide range of disciplines to work with industry to come up with new ideas and potential solutions for real problems.

All participants are responsible for organising their own travel to and from Bath.
