The ICMI/ICIAM joint Study on Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry is designed to enable researchers and practitioners around the world to share research, theoretical work, projects descriptions, experiences and analyses. As described in the Discussion Document, it will consist of two components: the Study Conference and the Study Volume.
The ICMI/ICIAM-Study on “Educational Interfaces between Mathematics and Industry (EIMI-study)” starts from two assumptions, namely:
(1) There are intimate connections between innovation, science, mathematics and the societal production and distribution of goods and services, in short: there intimate connections between mathematics and industry.
(2) There is a need for a fundamental analysis and reflection on – maybe new – strategies for education and training of students in view of these connections.
The EIMI-study seeks to better understand these connections and to offer ideas and suggestions how education and training can contribute to enhance the individual and societal development.
