Report on "Mathematics for Digital Science" published

As a result of an online consultation and a one-day workshop in Brussels on Mathematics for Digital Science, the European Commission's Directorate-General for Communications Networks, Content and Technology has now published a report on the results emerging from these activities. The commission has sought specific input from the mathematical and scientific community on how mathematics might help address the challenges of Big Data and near-future high performance computing (HPC). The Commission aims to use this input in its planning of the Horizon 2020 Work Programme 2016-2017. The EMS has participated actively in both the consultation and the workshop.
