European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry
The European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) is a consortium of academic institutions and industrial companies that acts co-operatively to promote the following aims:
- To promote and support the use of mathematical models in any activity of social or economic importance.
- To educate Industrial Mathematicians to meet the growing demand for such experts.
- To operate on a European scale.
Mathematics plays a key role in technology, economics and lifesciences and industry is increasingly dependent on mathematical expertise. ECMI aims to support European industry in the development of technological innovations and the promotion of the Europe 2020 Agenda for smart, sustainable and inclusive growth.
ECMI is run by a Council made up of representatives of 18 European countries which supports a network of institutional members.
The Education Committee coordinates the training of industrial mathematicians via masters courses, modelling weeks, summer schools and the exchange of students and teachers.
