SWI: solving problems for companies
What would you ask a bright mind?
The Studygroup Mathematics with Industry 2022 was hosted by Twente University but had to take place as an online event. The Study Group Mathematics with Industry 2020 was held at the Tilburg University of Applied Science from January 27 to January 31, 2020. It was the first time in twenty years that an SWI was held at a university of applied sciences. Topics went from traffic lights to optimal rating for tennis from droplets on wafers to delivering parcels and from optimizing warehouses to modelling joint tissue image. Sixty mathematicians gathered to solve six questions from companies – in one week.
“An inspiring week full of diverse real-world problems begging for some math.”
Lense Swaenen, participant SWI 2019
