Über dieses Buch

This unique book presents real world success stories of collaboration between mathematicians and industrial partners, showcasing first-hand case studies, and lessons learned from the experiences, technologies, and business challenges that led to the successful development of industrial solutions based on mathematics. It shows the crucial contribution of mathematics to innovation and to the industrial creation of value, and the key position of mathematics in the handling of complex systems, amplifying innovation. Each story describes the challenge that led to the industrial cooperation, how the challenge was approached and how the solutions were achieved and implemented. When brought together, they illustrate the versatile European landscape of projects in almost all areas of applied mathematics and across all business sectors. This book of success stories has its origin in the Forward Look about Mathematics and Industry that was funded by the European Science Foundation (ESF) and coordinated by the Applied Mathematics Committee of the European Mathematical Society (EMS). In each of these success stories, researchers, students, entrepreneurs, policy makers and business leaders in a range of disciplines will find valuable material and important lessons that can be applied in their own fields.​

Automotive Industry & Manufacturing

Abstract
In 2006 Volvo Car Corporation initiated together with the Swedish automotive industry and Vinnova a research project on developing software for simulation of processes in automotive paint shops. The software development was done by the Fraunhofer-Chalmers Research Centre for Industrial Mathematics (FCC) and the first version of the virtual spray painting tool was released in 2009.

Aerospace & Electronics

Abstract
This research project is concerned with the modelling of the electric charge phenomena that spacecrafts are subject to. These phenomena are sources of in-orbit failures since high potential differences induce the formation of electric arcing which can produce irreversible failures on on-board devices. The numerical simulation of such phenomena, taking into account the specificities of the space environment, is part of the conception of new spacecrafts.

Annex. Summary Report of the E.S.F. Forward Look

Abstract
Three priorities should be the heart of Europe 20202:
• Smart growth, by developing an economy based on knowledge and innovation.
• Sustainable growth, by promoting a more resource efficient, greener and more competitive economy.
• Inclusive growth, by fostering a high-employment economy delivering economic, social and territorial cohesion.
These three priorities are mutually reinforcing; they offer a vision of Europe's social market economy for the 21st century. Smart growth means strengthening knowledge and innovation as drivers of our future growth. This requires improving the quality of our education, strengthening our research performance, promoting innovation and knowledge transfer throughout the Union, making full use of information and communication technologies and ensuring that innovative ideas can be turned into new products and services that create growth, quality jobs and help address European and global societal challenges. At national level, Member States will need to ensure a sufficient supply of science, mathematics and engineering graduates and to focus school curricula on creativity, innovation, and entrepreneurship.
