The main goal of the 3rd Industrial workshop, promoted by the Portuguese Network for Mathematics in Industry and Innovation (PT-MATHS-IN), is to inspire new approaches to address the challenges faced by the health industry nowadays. Bringing together specialists from the health ecosystem and researchers from several areas, this workshop aims to discuss those challenges, to hear perspectives on the latest trends in healthcare and to identify promising opportunities where mathematics plays a significant role to improve that field.
Healthcare challenges are spread across many different areas such as precision medicine, big data and data management, wellness and prevention, or the social and ethical implications of advances in healthcare. Mathematics tools are often required do deal with these problems and are essential to derive effective solutions.
After last year’s successes, achieved with the Big Data and Smart Security industrial days, this one-day event aims to keep bringing together Academy and Industry in the discussion of areas of great scientific or industrial relevance and with the highest societal impact.
Gathering industry, research community, start-ups and regulators in an out-of-the-box discussion at the historical and vibrant University of Coimbra – classified by UNESCO as World Heritage site – PT-MATHS-IN aims to help the participants to contact with new ideas and trends on this field, as well as to extend their network among industrials and researchers on this area.
