European Study Group with Industry


Workshop on Computational and Modelling

Problems from Industry

September, 30 – October, 4, 2013


Proposals for modelling tasks are welcome

European Study Group with Industry is a week-long workshop where applied mathematicians work together with industrialists on R&D questions arising from industry or other organizations.

An interested company may suggest a problem or research question to the workshop. An industry representative will be asked to present the problem on the first day. A team of mathematicians and experts of computational methods will tackle the problem for the consecutive 4 days. Results are presented on the last day.

Oxford Study Group with Industry concept was pioneered at University of Oxford in 1960's. Later renamed as European Study Groups with Industry, ESGI has become a successful model worldwide.


European Study Group with Industry ESGI 96 will be organized in St Petersburg as Russian-Finnish collaboration on September, 30 – October, 4, 2013.

For academia the ESGI
workshop aims to


  • Foster contacts and collaboration between academia and industry
  • Identify research questions and topics for graduate students

The workshop provides
for companies


  • Fresh ideas and analyses of the problem
  • Consultation and brainstorming on available modelling, simulation and computational methods
  • Identification of topics for further research collaboration
  • Contacts to young researchers and PhD students
  • In some cased explicit solutions, often useful partial answers and insight
  • Allow companies to evaluate students for future employment


Problem 1 "Development of modeling strategy for simulation of the seismic impact onto underground polyethylene pipeline" (PDF, 50kb)

Problem 2 "Modeling of the electrohydraulic device" (PDF, 99kb)

Problem 3 "Modeling biological waste water treatment reactor" (PDF, 10kb)
