In its “Mathematics and …” thematic programme, the WWTF aims to promote scientific projects and Vienna Research Groups in the field of mathematics together with other disciplines. The projects include research in different fields where clear problems are identified such as society, economy, natural sciences and technology, however with no guaranteed short-term payoff. Typically, project proposals span from furthering the state-of-the-art in mathematics to using real data sets in promising application domains.
