Call for Proposals (Industrial)


PIMS invites proposals to advance collaboration and the use of mathematics and statistics in industrial settings for innovation and technology development in Canada.
This includes proposals for joint academic/industrial conferences and workshops, industrial short courses, job fairs and networking events, related HQP development and training, and other strategic academic-industry collaborations in the mathematical sciences. Regionally-focused Industrial Problem Solving Workshops can be hosted at any of the PIMS sites, and PIMS researchers are encouraged to contact the Innovation Coordinator (contact info below) to secure funding and participation for such events.
