One of my main interests is the application of mathematics to solving real world problems or applying abstract mathematics to real worl situations. This is generally referred to as industrial mathematics and often involves a collaboration with an academic and some sort of problem sponsor such as a private sector industry, non-profit organization, or government division. Several times a year and throughout the world there are industrial problem solving workshops where industry sponsors provide problems that a collection of academics work on for one to two weeks. I try to attend these types of workshops at least once a year.
