Maths Foresees


Final General Assembly, 8th-10th January 2018

The final Maths Foresees General Assembly took place at the University of Leeds in January 2018. The meeting showcased research funded by the network since its launch, including feasibility studies and outreach projects, and included updates from activities including the Environmental Modelling in Industry study group held in 2017. The meeting also served as an opportunity to discuss future directions following on from the Maths Foresees network, which will end in April 2018. Thank you to all who participated in this event.
