For companies

If your company faces a challenge for which you are looking a solution, if you look forward to run the company more effectively or are seeking for a brand new ideas please tell us about that by filling in the online registration form and provide your problem for scientists.

Proposal of Problems

We welcome you to provide problems from any area of business and industry. By applying mathematical methods during the Workshop we are able to optimize business and manufacturing processes, evaluate durability, identify, analyse and predict errors and failures, analyse sales and predict the risk of activities in an enterprise, estimate the effectiveness of the activities, solve problems in security of electronic data and tasks in encryption systems, solve problems in personal healthcare monitoring, medical diagnostics and drug research, optimize logistic processes and try out any other crazy idea of yours by the means of mathematical modelling.

The problem you provide does not have to be formulated mathematically. The organisers will give advice and will “translate” the task provided to mathematical problem by cooperating together with you. If you are not sure if your problem is suitable, do not hesitate to contact the organisers to give them a chance to help you.

We invite to submit a problem by completing online registration form below. In case of any questions do not hesitate to contact via e-mail mathforbusiness@ktu.edu.

Terms of Participation

In order to work effectively during the Workshop and to achieve expected results, a representative from the company participates in the event throughout all days of the Workshop and consults the scientists on questions related to activities of the enterprise, the provided data and on other inquiries. On the first day of the Workshop the representative from the business presents the problem to be solved at the workshop (about 10 minutes is dedicated for the presentation) while on the last day he attends the presentation of the results.

Participation Fee

The submission itself is free, but there will be a charge for each problem selected for the Study Group. The level set this year is 1500 EUR. This is to cover organisation and running costs. For more information please contact the organisers mathforbusiness@ktu.edu.
