Mission Statement and Aims
EU-MATHS-IN aims to leverage the impact of mathematics on innovations in key technologies by enhanced communication and information exchange between and among the involved stakeholders on a European level.
It shall become a dedicated one-stop shop to coordinate and facilitate the required exchanges in the field of application-driven mathematical research and its exploitation for innovations in industry, science, and society.
For this, it shall build an e-infrastructure that provides tailored access to information and facilitates communication and exchange by player-specific sets of services.
It will act as a facilitator, translator, educator, and link between and among the various players and their communities in Europe.
To leverage the impact of mathematics on innovations in key technologies it requires enhanced communication and information exchanges between the following categories of key players:
- R&D-staff in industry, science and society (i.e. the end-users of mathematical tools and expertises);
- Mathematicians in academia (i.e. the creators of novel mathematical tools and expertises);
- SMEs and spin-off companies with large mathematical content in their products and activities (i.e. the missing link between “creators” and “end-users” that transform mathematical innovations from academia into production-level software to be provided to industry).
- Furthermore, as the challenges to be dealt with are increasingly complex and multi-facetted, the integration on a European level of a large variety of mathematical expertises from different institutes is required.
