Conference ESF Forward Look on “Mathematics and Industry\"

when: 26.04.2010 - 27.04.2010
Where: Madrid - Madrid
Category: Conferencia
Event description:
The European Mathematical Society is currently involved in a “Forward Look Project” (a foresight exercise supported by the European Science Foundation), aimed at developing a European vision and policy recommendations on the interactions and synergy between Mathematics and economy (Industries, Companies, Banks, Insurances etc.).
The three working groups of the project (“Training and careers”, “Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry”, and “Opportunities and Challenges”) will be presenting their report at the Conference to be held in Madrid, 26-27th of April 2010.
The Conference will be an official event of the Spanish Presidency of EU and will be aimed at obtaining a more focussed attention to Mathematics by the European decision-makers (in particular in the preparation of the 8th Framework Program). A large participation of the community of European mathematicians is encouraged.

The Conference will include invited presentations by some major European companies (success stories and future challenges), a scientific conference by P.L.Lions, a general survey on industrial mathematics in Europe (Alfredo Bermudez de Castro), and a general discussion on the report prepared by the Working Groups and on the Policy Recommendations that will be issued as conclusion.
