Past Activities in Commercial Industrial Math
July 2009 to June 2010

The program supports several seminar series (some joint with MITACS),occasional workshops, courses and talks, and the Fields-MITACS Industrial Problem-Solving Workshop (FMIPW), which takes place at Fields in even-numbered years.

In 1999, Fields began a program to foster start-up companies that commercialize mathematical ideas and that can benefit from co-location at the Fields Institute. Companies are approved by the Fields Board on recommendation by the IAB. The goal of the program is to enable members of the Fields community to start business ventures by giving them access to the physical, intellectual and logistical resources of the Institute.
