ECMI has been running annual Modelling Weeks for students since 1988. Students come from all over Europe to spend a week working in small multinational groups on problems which are based on real life problems. Each group is led by an ECMI instructor who introduces the problem – usually formulated in non-mathematical terms – on the first day and then helps to guide the students to a solution during the week. The students present their results to the other groups on the last day and then write up their work as a report. After finishing the report students will get 3 ECTS credits.
One problem will be tutored by Idoia Cortes Garcia in the field of accelerator magnets.
Update: the modelling week is postponed to 2021.
