Mathematical Frontiers Webinar Series


Project Scope:

The Board on Mathematical Sciences and Analytics (BMSA) leads activities in the mathematical sciences at the National Academies of Sciences, Engineering, and Medicine. BMSA provides expertise drawn from a wide range of mathematical sciences to conduct independent and rigorous assessment of science, engineering, medical, defense, and policy issues in the service of national interest. We strive to: 

  • Provide actionable mathematical advice to policy makers
  • Strengthen connections between application areas and mathematics, statistics, and data science
  • Support the health of the mathematical sciences ecosystem and a robust educational pipeline
  • Increase public awareness of the expanding role of the mathematical sciences

Learn more about our work and sign up for our mailing list at nas.edu/bmsa.
