Companies have a possibility to benefit from the insights gained through mathematical analysis of their problems.

Present your problem to the lead mathematicians to brainstorm new ideas and work towards practical solutions. Each company will benefit from the work carried out by the participants, the interaction with academics, and the written report on the problem.

Study groups provide a unique opportunity for academics to work with industry to come up with new ideas and potential solutions for real problems.

Academic participants with backgrounds in all strands of mathematics are welcome and encouraged: The Cambridge Study Group will feature different problems that will be amenable to a wide range of different mathematical techniques.
