European Study group with Industry: ESGI 2016
General Information

Dates: January 25 to 29, 2016


Timetable (updated on January 15th)

We are pleased to announce that the 115th European Study Group with Industry (ESGI) will be held at the Centre de Recerca Matemàtica, Barcelona on the 25th-29th January 2016.


ESGIs are week-long problem solving workshops which provide a unique opportunity for industrial scientists to work alongside academic mathematicians on problems of direct industrial relevance. The ESGIs first started in Oxford in 1968, there are now 5-7 meetings held annually in different European countries as well as many others throughout the world. They are an internationally recognised method of technology transfer between academic mathematicians and industry.


At the meeting in Barcelona we expect to work on 3-4 problems, employing the expertise of 20-30 academics. There will be a limited number of grants for PhD and post-doctoral fellows to attend. For any enquiries please contact a member of the organising committee listed below.



Further information on study groups in general (their format, benefits, goals etc) may be found at the Math in Industry website: It also contains a repository of the reports on the problems from many of these meetings.
