The Technological Corporation of Andalusia (CTA) and the Institute of Mathematics of the University of Seville (IMUS), in collaboration with the Spanish Network for Mathematics and Industry (math-in), have held a conference in the auditorium of the Faculty of Mathematics, University of Sevilla on mathematical technology transfer.

The Director of Business Development and a Consultant of Technological Corporation of Andalusia, David Paez and Ignacio Garcia Fenoll, respectively, participated in the presentation. This event seeks to transfer to industry those mathematical technology applications that may be useful.

Emilio Carrizosa, from the University of Sevilla, explained the success story of collaboration between Repsol and FQM329 research group to identify models in processes of chemical reactions; while Manuel Castro, University of Malaga, presented the case of the tsunami simulation of the Malaga Oceanographic Center in collaboration with the FQM216 group; and Juan Puerto de Albornoz, University of Sevilla, explained how mathematics help to optimize a distribution network thanks to the collaboration of Ghenova with FQM331 group. On the other hand, the inspector of the National Police, Miguel Camacho, explained how predictive mathematical models are applied to anticipate the criminal risk, for which the National Police is working with the Department of Statistics and Operations Research at the University of Granada .

Math-in network and several research groups presented their technological capacities in mathematics businesses and their potential applications, while several companies and institutions such as Abengoa, Ghenova, the National Police and the Port of Seville, presented their success cases.

About IMUS

The Research Institute of Mathematics of the University of Seville (IMUS) named Professor Antonio de Castro Brzezicki, promoter of mathematics studies at this University and leading figure in the Spanish Mathematics. Its objectives are to organize and develop research activities in all fields and aspects of mathematics and its applications, qualitatively and quantitatively encourage such research, support the various research groups in mathematics from the University of Seville and foster collaboration between them with other groups of national or international research, in particular by promoting interdisciplinary, and science, technology, health, financial, etc. sectors, demanding aid of mathematics.

About math-in

The Spanish Network for Mathematics and Industry (math-in) is a private non-profit association composed of about thirty research groups belonging to twenty different Spanish universities. Math-in focuses on promoting and carrying out mathematical technology transfer to business and industry, thus encouraging the increased competitiveness of both research groups involved and the industry itself.
