The development of new products, production processes or improvements in the society today is dominated by the use of simulation and optimization methods that, based on a detailed mathematical modeling, support or even replace the costly production of prototypes and classical trial-and-error methods. To address this development and following the Recommendations of the Forward Look ‘Mathematics and Industry’ published by the European Science Foundation, several European research networks have established a new organization to increase the impact of mathematics on innovations in key technologies and to foster the development of new modeling, simulation and optimization tools.
