Mentoring at mathematical modelling camp

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.
