Interaction with industry is being a desirable aim for European studies to contribute to the progress of European industry. Based on a new Model Curriculum oriented to best practical solutions, this project is intended to deliver an innovative set of European Master Programmes in Industrial Mathematics to be implemented through double degree agreements among the participants. The Partners are members of the European Consortium of Mathematics for Industry (ECMI, created in 1987) and the new model is envisaged to be adopted by other members of ECMI. Industrial Mathematics (IM) is known as a vital resource for R&D and innovation in Europe: Ingenious use of mathematics means competitive edge in design, accelerate test cycles, support systems integration and improvement of production models. Besides, IM is a challenge for the university education and the modern view of mathematics that should be reflected in educational practices. Knowledge in IM is of specialized nature and at present is dispersed in small nodes. Therefore, there is an obvious need for collaboration, knowledge sharing and retrieval from the scattered pockets of expertise. To meet this challenge ECMI was created, and based on this accumulated experience we are ready for this proposal. The new Model Curriculum and the Master Programmes are meant to harness the pooled special knowledge and to create a joint learning curve for the partner universities. Therefore, this initial network is meant to grow, not only inside ECMI, but throughout the European space, including possibly Turkey.
