Week Programme

The programme of  the workshop is as follows:

  • Selected companies/organisations present their challenge on the 1st day (half an hour).
  • The researchers (mathematical scientists) self-organize into teams (one team formed per challenge) and go to their room.
  • For the rest of the week the teams work intensively on the challenges.
  • By the end of the week the teams identify a preliminary solution, and suggest a strategy for further collaborative work with the non-academic organisations. They present these results during the last day (half an hour each team).
