i-MATH Map of Demand for Mathematical Technology (TransMATH Demand Map)
The TransMATH Demand Map analyses the results of a survey of 5,176 Spanish firms belonging to ten different sectors of economic activity. This chapter presents the main conclusions of the study in relation to the level of knowledge and use of mathematical technology by Spanish companies (such as computer-aided design, computer-aided engineering, statistical and operations research tools, and other mathematical techniques applicable to industry), the presence of personnel qualified in mathematics or statistics on their workforces, their requirements for mathematical services or qualified mathematicians or statisticians, and their interest in possible collaborations with universities or research centres.
