On Thursday, April 26, the report “The Era of Mathematics” (https://epsrc.ukri.org/newsevents/pubs/era-of-maths/) was presented at the House of Lords in London by Prof. Philip Bond. The report explores the critical role of mathematical sciences to the UK’s increasingly innovative economy. It highlights their wide-ranging social and economic impact and makes nine recommendations about how to ensure the UK becomes a world leader in mathematical science knowledge exchange. Recommendations made in “The Era of Mathematics” include:

–             The establishment of an Academy for the Mathematical Sciences to facilitate links between academia, government and industry

–             The creation of a minimum of 100 additional PhD places per year dedicated to training mathematical scientists

–             Tripling of the funding that goes to mathematical sciences”
