The Mathematics Department brings together the mathematical forces at the Université Paris-Saclay: research units, partnerships, teams or structures identified in mathematics by their home institutions and recognised for their mathematical skills. The Think Tank is a structure for strengthening and dialogue in relation to cross-disciplinary activities between all stakeholders in this department and other departments at the university.

The department is looking to be a forum for consultation for all mathematical stakeholders on campus, in research fields as well as for education (without replacing the operational structures, i.e., "Schools" and graduate schools), as education and research are traditionally very closely linked in mathematics.

It will lead to a reflection on the structuring of mathematics in research and education, through increased school-university exchanges in mathematics, the identification of new areas of research and new education courses, including at master’s and doctoral levels.
