Industry Study Group 2024

Hetsys Industry group
HetSys is pleased to launch its Industry Study Group for 2024.

This will be our fifth Industry Study Group, in partnership with the Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). Study Groups with industry have been running for over fifty years and, having started with pioneering work in the UK in the 1960s, these groups now take place all over the world. They have been hugely successful in solving problems and providing insight for a variety of organisations.

Building on our previous successful sessions we welcome a multidisciplinary research audience of HetSys PhD students and their supervisors, academics and associated colleagues.

Representatives from Industry will present their challenges to our students, who will then break into groups to work collaboratively over the next three days to code, model, and sketch solutions to the problems. The groups will meet again at the end of the three days to share their ideas and propose solutions.

The event will be held at Scarman House on the University of Warwick campus. It is free to attend but places are very limited so please register as soon as possible.
