ITMATI will participate in the the most important forum for technology transfer and technological innovation that takes place in Spain and which will be held on 13 and 14 February in Málaga. ITMATI will also meet representatives of different companies.

ITMATI will present success cases of its different research groups which have been constituted as public Consortium last week. This initiative has been promoted from Galicia, and in which nine groups of Applied Mathematics and Statistics and Operations Research from the three Galician universities participate. ITMATI wants to consolidate the Industrial Mathematics field in Galicia, increasing the existing collaboration with businesses, providing a measurable qualitative and quantitative leap in terms of business investment in R&D. ITMATI is an important milestone to promote the transfer of mathematical technology to businesses, industries and public administrations. Although Spanish companies are not known for their use in mathematical technology, one proof fact is that when they use it significant improvements are achieved. One of the best ways to disseminate and publicize the potential of using this technology is to present case studies in which mathematics has already brought added value to companies, enabling the development of new innovations that have benefited them. ITMATI will participate in a "speaker corner" to be held at the 2013 Transfer Forum. The success cases that will be presented will deal with the financial sector, valuation of financial assets, design and operation of induction furnaces for Ferroatlática R & D, treatment of epidemiological data for the Epidemiology Service of the General Directorate for Innovation and Public Health Management of the Xunta de Galicia, prediction in claims in the insurance section of Inditex. 

The ITMATI capabilities as well as its consultancy services will be presented at this conference.
