Project Title:

The Mathematical Sciences in 2025
PIN: BMSA-L-08-03-A        

Major Unit:

Division on Engineering and Physical Sciences

Sub Unit: DEPS Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics

RSO: Weidman, Scott

Subject/Focus Area:

Project Scope
The study will produce a forward-looking assessment of the current state of the mathematical sciences and of emerging trends that will affect the discipline and its stakeholders as they look ahead to the quarter century mark. Specifically, the study will assess:

- The vitality of research in the mathematical sciences, looking at such aspects as the unity and coherence of research, significance of recent developments, rate of progress at the frontiers, and emerging trends;
- The impact of research and training in the mathematical sciences on science and engineering; on industry and technology; on innovation and economic competitiveness; on national security; and other areas of national interest.

The study will make recommendations to NSF's Division of Mathematical Sciences on how to adjust its portfolio of activities to improve the vitality and impact of the discipline.

The Project is sponsored by the National Science Foundation
The approximate start date for the project is 08/01/09
A report will be issued at the end of the project in approximately 21 months.

Note: The project duration has been extended. The final report is expected to be issued in January 2013.
