ESGI (European Study Group with Industry) is Europe’s leading workshop bringing together mathematicians and industrial companies. Companies submit mathematical problems for the study group to solve; often in the form of a modelling or an optimization problem. Participants work in groups around each problem, presenting the results of their efforts to industry at the end of the week. A written report on each problem is drawn up and presented to the companies.
MI-Net has funded 21 European Study Groups with Industry involving 80 companies from all over Europe.
