Study Group Mathematics with Industry 2019

SWI 2019 will be held  from January 28 to February 1 at the WICC (Wageningen International Congress Centre) of Wageningen University. Companies are invited to pose a problem by contacting the local organisation committee.

 

What is SWI?
The Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI) is a combined industrial–academic week-long workshop sponsored by NWO. Roughly seventy mathematicians work in groups on problems submitted by companies. Companies present a selection of problems on Monday. The participants devote the entire week to studying these problems in smaller groups, and presents their results on Friday.

Fruitful collarations
SWI is ideal for companies that are new to cooperation with academia. The event is often a first step towards a fruitful long-term collaboration between companies and academia.
