Mathematics has a long history of providing the common language and the appropriate intellectual frame for other disciplines. In this classical scheme, mathematical new breakthroughs do not a priori affect other sectors of society, except in a longer perspective. However, in the last decades an additional and new paradigm has also emerged. Indeed, modern human societies do nowadays encounter many urgent technology-based problems which have become more and more complicated and harder to handle. Complexity phenomena arising in, e.g., artificial intelligence, big data and robotics, are now often beyond the efficiency zone of the existing tools. In this new context, Mathematics can take direct action.
The objective of our work group is to promote cooperative research activities among the six universities in corresponding custom-made applications of mathematics as well as in advancing the frontiers of pure mathematics by balancing seeds in mathematics and needs outside mathematics. This is based on the insight that to attack new real world problems we need new mathematical concepts and methods, and that new applications of mathematics will in turn also stimulate the development of new mathematical theories.
