The Smith Institute coordinated the NETIAM project in support of the European Commission's programme in New and Emerging Science and Technology (NEST) under Framework 6. The project started in March 2004 and lasted for 15 months. It concentrated on New and Emerging Themes in Industrial and Applied Mathematics (NETIAM), and brought 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 used mathematical frameworks to identify ground-breaking research directions in four themes:
- Modelling criminality in the urban environment
- Modelling the business environment
- Visualization and simulation of materials
- Complexity in modelling proteins and interfaces at the molecular level.
During 2004 multidisciplinary workshops in each of these four themes were hosted around Europe. Further details and a report on the findings of each workshop can be found by following the links above. A Capstone workshop was held in Oxford in March 2005 to consolidate the findings into a form that will enable new research consortia to be taken forward.
