Knowledge exchange in the Department of Mathematics

In the last few years knowledge exchange activity has increased dramatically in the Department of Mathematics.

We're finding mathematical challenges in sectors and companies where we wouldn't have seen them before.

Companies can see what a difference having a mathematical approach can make to a problem.

Our staff are now engaging proactively with industrial partners and a dedicated technology translator works within the Department to foster relationships.

Applying mathematics to complex business problems allows you to remove the noise around the problem and focus on the core elements more effectively. That's why more organisations from an increasing range of sectors are investing in maths-based knowledge exchange.
