Event Details

Background

The UQ&M SIG held its inaugural Study Group with Industry in July 2016, and it’s second in March 2017– in three intense days researchers covering mathematics, statistics, computer science, engineering and others worked with industry representatives (to date Airbus, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover, MTC and Zenotech) to help tackle their real UQ&M problems.

With support from the University of Warwick and Innovate UK and three / four new industry problems (to be announced shortly!!).

 

The Study Group

The purpose of the Study group was four-fold:

1. To help companies with established UQ programmes refine their approaches,

2. To help companies new to the field understand the benefit that UQ&M could have on their operations,

3. To expose UK researchers to the kind of challenges UK industries wish to apply UQ&M to, and

4. To enable a cross-fertilisation of ideas between disciplines (data scientists, statisticians, numerical analysts etc.)

 

The Problems

  • AWE Plc. - Predicting Metallic Corrosion Events
  • AstraZeneca Evaluation of Graph Based Descriptions of Molecules for Machine-Learning Predictions
  • HS2 Ltd. - Visualising, Communicating and Managing Risk in Complex Construction Projects 
  • Zenotech - Increasing Certainty in Offshore Energy - Application to Horns Rev Array

 

Why take part in the Study Group?

Academics Industry
  • Get new problems
  • Get new solutions
  • Expand research portfolio
  • Access to highly qualified individuals
  • Vital contact with industry
  • Written report

Costs to Take Part

The majority of the Study Group is paid for by the sponsoring organisations (University of Warwick and Innovate UK), however to cover some costs, there will be a nominal registration fee for external participants. This fee will cover accommodation (available Tuesday, Wednesday and/or Thursday) and meals. We also ask that travel costs should be sought from attendees’ own institutions.

As well as covering the above costs for food and accommodation, the problem posers will receive a detailed technical report exploring what was done and what needs to be done as a result.
