The ESGI (European Study Group with Industry) is Europe's leading workshop for interaction between mathematicians and industry.
These week-long workshops have been held annually since 1968 (originally as the Oxford Study Groups with Industry) and attract leading mathematicians to work on industrial (in a broad sense) problems.
In the past, problem areas have included processes amenable to modelling by continuum mechanics, for instance involving heat and mass transfer, fluid flow, granular materials, electric fields, ranging to financial-derivative pricing, and housing strategies, but in principal there are no limitations to the types of mathematics used, or problem areas to be tackled, by these workshops.
They have also served to establish links between university mathematics departments and industry.
Further details, some information about other study groups, and the possibility of notification of interest are available electronically or you may contact the Study Group chairman:
