The mathematical sciences community welcomes this report, which clearly demonstrates the importance of mathematics and its impact across an exceptionally wide range of disciplines, technologies and industries.
The review has recognised the need to develop a sustainable people pipeline of top-level mathematical sciences talent within academia, nurturing individuals keen to engage with government, industry and wider research challenges. The report highlights the current shortage of such individuals and makes a strong case for increased investment in the discipline.
It also recognises the need to establish infrastructure to facilitate effective and timely communication and interaction between mathematicians and potential users.
The mathematics community will consider the detailed recommendations of the report and welcomes the contribution the review makes in taking the policy debate forward.
