**Industrial mathematics**

During the
years Bob Mattheij has been inspired by real life applications. This has led to
a number of activities, scientifically, educationally and organisationally
in an area of what is commonly indicated as *industrial
mathematics*.

In 1983 he
founded, together with van Groesen en Ruymgaart a mathematical consultancy group WD (*Wiskundige** Dienstverlening*) in Nijmegen.

In 1985 he
organized the (first?) *European
Symposium on Mathematics in Industry*, ESMI (with van Groesen
en Hazewinkel). Out of this activity grew ECMI, *the European Consortium for mathematics in Industry, that* officially started in 1986.

He was the
secretary and treasurer of ECMI from 1987 till 1996 and president from 1996
till 1998. Of the many activities of ECMI he further participated in was the
organization of the Conference ECMI 2004,
held in Eindhoven.

In 1990 he
founded, together with de Groot and van Beckum the Dutch society for industrial and
applied mathematics ITW
(*Industriële** en Toegepaste
Wiskunde*), a foundation, later becoming a section of KWG; he was president of ITW from 1992
till 2002.

In 1998 he introduced the study group idea,
developed by Alan Tayler in Oxford in
the seventies, in the Netherlands, initially under the aegis of ECMI and ITW;
the first meeting was in Leiden. Since then it has become a self sustained
successful (university rotating) event ever since.

In
1999 ECMI and ECCOMAS joined forces and on request of the European Commission
jointly established the centre of excellence MASCI-net* (Mathematics, Simulation and Computing for
Industry*) with Bob Mattheij as co-ordinator and chairman of the board. One of the outcomes of
this activity was a roadmap
for mathematics in industry.

In 2001 he organised
one of the first international master programmes of the TU/e, CSE (*Computational Science and Engineering*); this programme was later
reinforced by establishing a cooperation with the universities of
Kaiserslautern and Linz through ESIM (*European School for Industrial Mathematics*),
which got a large grant from the European Commission for its double degree IM (*Industrial Mathematics*) curriculum in
2005.

At the moment educational links with
other universities are are being established; as an
example a double degree with University of the West
in Timosoara has started in 2010.

In 2005 Bob Mattheij took again the
initiative to establish a mathematics consultancy group, initially as an
activity within CASA. This led to the foundation of LIME (*Laboratory
for Industrial Mathematics Eindhoven*) in 2007. Since January 2011 LIME is a
private enterprise employing about 20 consultants. LIME BV carries out projects
for industry on modelling and simulation, image analysis, data analysis and
optimization. It maintains its ties to the university.
