Advanced course's information
Recent years have witnessed a renewed interest in mathematical modelling of tumour growth and therapy. This increase in activity in this area has been boosted by enhanced access to data (OMICS, medical imaging) and recent developments in the area of multi-scale modelling. This course is aimed at introducing recent progress in the field of mathematical modelling applied to tumour growth and oncology, particularly focused in the emergence of new modelling and analytical multi-scale techniques and the new opportunities for model validation based on increased availability of data. The course is particularly aimed at an audience composed of graduate students and postdocs in mathematics with an interest in the applications of mathematics to biology.

In order to increase the number of young researchers participating in this activity, the CRM announces a call for those participants interested in taking part in this activity. This grant includes a reduced registration fee (100 euros) and housing in a shared apartment on campus from April 2nd to 7th, 2018

Application form (closed)

​Application deadline for grants: March 1st, 2018 (Resolutions will be sent before March 11th)​​


The EMS also offers some travel grants to young mathematicians from less-favoured regions within the geographical area of EMS membership for presenting results at conferences or attending courses, or for research stays in foreign countries, normally up to a maximum of 900 euros in each case or 500 euros for trips within Europe.

Eligible researchers should use this online form​ in order to apply for travel grants.
