The online consultation on mathematics was carried out from 29 January to 15 May 2016 by the European Commission Directorate General for Communications Networks, Content & Technology (DG CONNECT) in the context of a stakeholder consultation to prepare the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2018-2020.
The report presents the results of the online consultation on mathematics launched early 2016 to nourish the future Horizon2020 Work Programme (2018-20) with innovative mathematical content.
Two facts motivated this request: today’s digital society depends on mathematics and algorithms; there is a vast pool of mathematical talent in Europe. The conclusion is that Europe can be first in mathematical applications for big data, computing and especially HPC, to be first in modern science and innovation.
