The aim of the workshop was to create a mutually beneficial link between researchers in mathematics and real problems appearing in industrial capacities in Macedonia. To gain contacts and collaboration between academic participants and people working in industry that could lead to long-term research collaborations and introduce challenging new research areas.
The industrial workshop was opened by local organizer Biljana Jolevska-Tuneska.
