Mathematics is required for many industrial applications. A recent report estimates that Mathematical Sciences is worth £208bn to the economy and 10% of jobs. So it is important for Mathematicians to engage with industry.
Last week, Tim Reis was a mentor at a graduate mathematical modelling camp, hosted at the Mathematical Institute, Oxford. It was was a week long event for postgrads designed to encouraging their modelling skills, with a particular emphasis on solving problems from industry. The camp was organized by EPSRC-sponsored CTD in Industrial-Focussed Mathematical Modelling and the IMA
Tim’s group won the prize awarded by the IMA.
