The COVID-19 pandemic is currently generating considerable activity among applied and industrial mathematicians across Europe. The mathematics of modelling, simulation, and optimisation in all its various forms has experienced an unusual level of attention from authorities and from the media.
In recent weeks, separate teams of researchers in countries across Europe (and elsewhere) have been busy with the urgent task of providing a rigorous basis for difficult political decisions. To aid exchange of ideas and preliminary results, to stimulate discussion, and to foster international collaboration, the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry (ECMI) organised a web seminar on April 29, 2020 with experts from different countries, who outline their approaches in short presentations.
BIGMATH partners such as University of Milan and University of Novi Sad have contributed to organise the webinar. Please find more on:
