NETIAM - New and Emerging Themes in Industrial and Applied Mathematics

The Smith Institute is coordinating a project in support of the European Commission's programme in New and Emerging Science and Technology (NEST) under Framework 6.

The NETIAM project started in March 2004 and will last for 15 months. It will concentrate on New and Emerging Themes in Industrial and Applied Mathematics (NETIAM), and brings together the Smith Institute with Fraunhofer-ITWM in Germany, the Technical University of Eindhoven in The Netherlands, the University of Firenze in Italy and Ventspils University College in Latvia. NETIAM will use mathematical frameworks to identify ground-breaking research directions in four themes: - modelling criminality in the social environment ,- modelling the business environment,- visualization and simulation of materials ,- complexity at the molecular level. The Smith Institute will facilitate multidisciplinary Thematic Workshops on each of the above topics and hosted by its four NETIAM partners around Europe. A capstone Plenary Workshop will consolidate the findings into a form that will enable new research consortia to be taken forward.
