Study Group Mathematics with Industry 2022
The Study Group Mathematics with Industry 2022 will be held as a hybrid event at the University of Twente and online from 24 January to 28 January 2022.
The University of Twente will host the next edition of the Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI). SWI 2021 was postponed due to the COVID-19 outbreak, but we expect that the event will take place in January 2022.
What is SWI?
The Study Group Mathematics with Industry (SWI) is a combined industrial–academic week-long workshop sponsored by NWO. Roughly sixty mathematicians, ranging from PhD students to full professors, 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.
Participation is free of charge, including the lunches and dinners mentioned in the program. If needed, accommodation (also free of charge for a limited number of participants) will be arranged for participants.
Topics SWI 2022
- You2Yourself – Towards personalized health monitoring
- PostNL – Planning inter transports and loading trucks
More problems will be announced soon.

The University of Twente will host the next edition of the Studygroup. After being postponed for one year, the event will take place in January of 2022.
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.
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.
If you wish to contribute a problem to SWI 2022, please contact the organization committee through firstname.lastname@example.org. We will then contact you to discuss the details of the suggested problem and whether it is suitable for SWI. Discussions about suggested problems have turned out to be very fruitful for companies. After the discussion about a suggested problem, a formal decision about acceptance will made by the SWI organization committee. If your problem is accepted, a representative of your company is expected to be available at various moments during the week.
The costs of participating as a company are €1750.
