Konferenz: Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry - Study Conference (EIMI). Lisabon, Portugal. Internet: Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry - Study Conference

Termin: 19. - 23. April 2010


von der Webseite: The ICMI/ICIAM-Study on “Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry (EIMI-study)” starts from two assumptions, namely:

(1) There are intimate connections between innovation, science, mathematics and the societal production and distribution of goods and services, in short: there intimate connections between mathematics and industry.

(2) There is a need for a fundamental analysis and reflection on – maybe new – strategies for education and training of students in view of these connections.

The EIMI-study seeks to better understand these connections and to offer ideas and suggestions how education and training can contribute to enhance the individual and societal development.


The conference consists of six plenary invited lectures, about sixty parallel paper presentations and six Working Groups (WG). Each WG is coordinated by two IPC members, and all participants of the conference are invited to participate and to contribute to the ICMI-ICIAM International Study.
