Mathematical sciences

Research in the mathematical sciences is a key element for the advancement of all areas of science and technology, as well as being a vital area of science in itself. Our aim is to sustain core research capability, while promoting transformative and cross-disciplinary research that has the potential for significant impact.

The Mathematical Sciences portfolio will be actively shaped by considering the need to maintain an excellent and effective capability in mathematics and the needs of other disciplines and non-academic research users. In order to do this effectively we will need to reduce support in lower priority areas.
