The Fondation Sciences Mathématiques de Paris allows meetings between mathematicians and its laboratories and the industrial world thanks to Horizon Maths. Two annual days for mathematics lectures dealing with subjects linked to industrial topics.
Each session of this event is co-organized by the Foundation and sponsored by a firm (EADS in 2010, AREVA in 2011, TOTAL in 2012, GDF SUEZ in 2013, IFP Energies nouvelles in 2014). Main lectures themes are proposed and discussed between the Foundation and the company. They cooperatively agree on the choice of invited lecturers who have to come from the industrial and academic world. The final program is also collectively made.
The event is welcomed by the co-organized company. Apart from lectures, a big part of the program is assigned to talks between participants. It allows them to clear up some points , to go further concerning the program's subjects or to begin discussions which will probably be followed after the event.
Lectures are captured, according to the agreement of each lecturers and its company. Then, videos are posted online on the Foundation website.
