The MaRDI consortium has a strong core in, and a wide embedding into mathematics and its applications. Through applications it reaches out to many different scientific disciplines. The following members are collaborating in the seven task areas:

Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS)
MaRDI Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Michael Hintermüller

The WIAS conducts project-oriented research for the solution of complex application driven problems in technology, science and business. The institute thus contributes to solving some of the grand challenges currently faced by our society, such as the optimal and sustainable use of energy or new developments in medical technology. Its core competences are in Applied Analysis and Applied Stochastics, the mathematically consistent modeling of real world phenomena as well as the development and implementation of numerical algorithms and the development of scientific software.

FIZ Karlsruhe - Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure (FIZ)
MaRDI Co-Spokesperson: Prof. Dr. Harald Sack

FIZ Karlsruhe – Leibniz Institute for Information Infrastructure is one of the large information infrastructure institutions in Germany and member of the Leibniz Association. With our activities, we contribute significantly to the information infrastructure: We provide information to researchers in science and industry worldwide. To this end, we develop very large volumes of patent and research information from a wide variety of sources. For precise research and intelligent analysis of these data, we develop and operate innovative information services and e-research solutions, e.g. for research data management and digital preservation.
