Mathematics Winter School

06/02/2019 — 08/02/2019

The Mathematics Winter School (MWS) is designed to help students from the first or beginning second cycle of university studies find fascinating study options. Mathematicians, from university and industry, are going to talk about mathematics, its applications, mathematical research, and mathematics in the real word, in an environment where students will have time and space to look, listen and think ahead.

The MWS is open to all interested students, at the end of the first cycle of studies or at the beginning of the second cycle, from IST or other schools, students of mathematics or not. Students from outside the Lisbon area may apply for financial support.
