About ESGI

Across a five day workshop, the European Study Group with Industry brings mathematicians and industrialists together to work side by side to solve the real and important issues that companies are facing today.

From Sunday 17th to Friday 22nd  March 2019, the 144th European Study Group with Industry will be held in Warsaw, Poland. The organizer is the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences.

The idea of Study Groups, initiated in Oxford University in 1968, has long traditions to link academic mathematicians and industry. Following the spirit of industrial mathematics, it utilizes the strict logical reasoning and deep theoretical knowledge to solve demanding, real-life industrial problems.

Study Groups with Industry have been held annually for over 50 years in UK, now in fact are implemented with success in other countries like USA, Canada, China, Denmark, the Netherlands or Australia. In 2010, as the part of European series of Study Groups, it is also held in Poland for the first time.

Study Groups are directed to post-graduate mathematicians (doctoral students, doctors and higher), however scientists from other fields like economics, computer science, physics, engineering, etc. are also welcome.

There is no participation fee. Moreover, accommodation and meals will be provided by the organizers.



Before the European Study Group with Industry we offer participants to join the Graduate Modelling Camp.

It is a 5-day workshop from 11th to 15th March 2019 that aims to provide participants with hands-on experience of mathematical modelling under the guidance of an experienced instructor. The camp is open to all PhD students and designed to promote a broad range of problem-solving skills, such as mathematical modelling & analysis, scientific computation & critical assessment of solutions.
