The main aims of the Modelling Week are to train students in Mathematical Modelling using industrial problems and stimulate their collaboration and communication skills in an international and intersectoral environment. ECMI MW has been running annually in Europe since 1988, Iberian MW in Portugal-Spain since 2014, and the NeEDS MW is the first of a series within the H2020-MSCA-RISE NeEDS project (agreement No 822214).

The ECMI Postgraduate / VI Iberian / NeEDS Modelling Week will be held at the Mathematical Institute of the University of Seville IMUS (Seville, Spain) on July 8th-13th, 2019. It is co-organized by the European Consortium for Mathematics and Industry (ECMI), the Spanish Network for Mathematics-Industry (math-in), the Portuguese Network of Mathematics for Industry and Innovation (PT-MATHS-IN), and the H2020-MSCA-RISE NeEDS project (NeEDS), and takes part of the satellite meetings to the 9th International Congress on Industrial and Applied Mathematics ICIAM 2019 (July 15th-19th, 2019, Valencia, Spain).

In this special event, two well established and periodic “Modelling Week” type meetings, ECMI and Iberian, join together with the H2020-MSCA-RISE NeEDS consortium, consisting of 14 partners, 6 being academic, 2 national offices for statistics and 8 from industry, to present in a different unique format a challenging Modelling Week. This will be held just the week before to the ICIAM 2019-Valencia Congress. One particular topic is that the travel expenses on July 14th from Seville to Valencia will be included for participants of the ECMI-Pg / VI Iberian / NeEDS MW attending the ICIAM 2019. Thus encouraging the attendance of participants to both meetings and maximizing the impact between academia, research and industry.

The format of the Modelling Week is to spend one week working to solve real problems that can be tackled through mathematical modeling. Small groups of multinational Master students, Ph.D. students and junior researchers (like post-doctoral students) will be assigned to each problem in term of their preference and own skills on the first day of the event after the presentation of the problems. An instructor, that must be an expert in the area, of the proposed problem leads each of these groups. During the following four days students will work on solving the problems under the guidance of the instructor and industrial collaborators. Last day of the meeting will be devoted to the presentation of the results, which will be collected in the proceedings of the event. 

This Modeling Week is a satellite meeting of ICIAM 2019 that will be held in July 2019 at Valencia, Spain.
