The European Mathematical Society (EMS) has several committees in charge of different aspects of its activities. The Applied Mathematics Committee is the standing committee of the EMS involved in the promotion of applied and industrial mathematics at the European level.

The EMS Applied Mathematics Committee wants to promote Applied Mathematics as a whole through and within EMS. It wants to cooperate with other, sometimes more specialized, societies on the European and global level and with applications-oriented member societies, especially in further improving the public and political awareness about the importance of mathematics to cultural, economic and social development. In particular, the EMS and ECMI, the European Consortium for Mathematics in Industry, have signed a collaboration agreement since 2012, which at the level of the EMS will be carried out by its Applied Mathematics Committee.
