BAT entrepreneurship centre has already opened its doors

BCAM will be one of the entities that will be connected to the International Centre for Entrepreneurship in Bizkaia, B Accelerator Tower BAT

B Accelerator Tower (BAT) opened its doors today 19 September in the Bizkaia Tower with the aim of becoming a large community of startups, companies, investors, scientific-technological agents and training centres, both local and international. “It was created to generate an ecosystem where entrepreneurship, innovation and added value are promoted”, said Gonzalo Sánchez, president of PwC in Spain. Furthermore, it was created with the idea of positioning Bizkaia internationally as an innovative entrepreneurship pole of reference in Southern Europe and to promote the dynamisation of the local entrepreneurship ecosystem through actions that enable interaction between the different agents.

Dr. Ilya Smirnov has obtained one of the Knowledge Generation Projects 2021 from the State Research Agency

Measuring ideals in a singularity (MIDES) belongs to the Knowledge Generation Projects 2021 from the State Research Agency. His research focuses on advancing our understanding of singularities by furthering theories of several singularity measures.

Singularities are special points on curves, surfaces, or higher-dimensional geometric bodies such as self-intersections or creases, while singularity measures are ways to assign each singularity a number representing its level of complexity”, explains Dr. Ilya Smirnov. “This is similar to how competition is judged in “subjective” sports, such as ice-skating or diving, where each performance is assigned a number and those numbers are then compared to decide a winner.”

BCAM participates in the project “Spectral Theory and PDE: Real and Fourier Analysis” of Dr. Luca Fanelli and Dr. Renato Lucà, principal investigators

Dr. Luca Fanelli and Dr. Renato Lucà are the principal investigators of the project “Spectral Theory and PDE: Real and Fourier Analysis” (Ec & Spec) of the Knowledge Generation Projects 2021 of the State Research Agency.

The project “Spectral Theory and PDE: Real and Fourier Analysis” (Ec & Spec) focuses on problems in Quantum Mechanics (especially related to the Schrödinger and Dirac equations) and magnetohydrodynamics that can be studied using fine harmonic analysis techniques.

The main objective of the project, which will be carried out with the support of the Provincial Council of Bizkaia, is to “promote applied mathematical research into the challenges of today’s sport, with the main focus on the health and performance of sportsmen and sportswomen”.

Basque Center for Applied Mathematics – BCAM, presents the new project to promote mathematics applied to the challenges of today’s sport: MATH4SPORTS- Mathematical Modelling for the sports industry: health and performance. The project, which will last 2 years, will be carried out thanks to the funding granted by the Provincial Council of Bizkaia of more than €150,000 through the Technology Transfer Programme 2022 and is co-financed by the ERDF.

The event will be held at Basque Center for Applied Mathematics from 25 to 28 October 2022

The event has the aim to “increase the visibility in the general mathematical community” of the mathematics of machine learning.

The workshop focuses on two target audiences: mathematicians interested in machine learning and researchers already working on it. For the first group it “can serve to obtain first-hand knowledge of machine learning from a familiar perspective and to discover the main mathematical tools used in the field.” On the other hand, for those researchers already working on machine learning, the workshop will “serve to promote interactions among researchers with shared interests and to learn about the latest results on certain specific topics.”

Luis Vega González, Professor in the Department of Mathematics at the University of the Basque Country (UPV/EHU) and coordinator of the Analysis of Partial Differential Equations area and principal investigator of the Severo Ochoa accreditation of the Basque Centre for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) received the National Research Award “Julio Rey Pastor” 2021, in a ceremony held in Barcelona yesterday, 5 May 2022, at the Auditori Fòrum CCIB.
