BCAM is a world-class interdisciplinary Research Center in the field of Applied Mathematics that was founded in 2008 as a Basque Excellence Research Center (BERC), with a focus on interdisciplinary research in Mathematics, as well as training and attracting talented scientists, and promoting scientific and technological advances worldwide. The center has been awarded (2013, 2018, 2021) three times in a row with the Severo Ochoa distinction that consolidates BCAM as one of the most relevant institutions of the field in Europe.

From the inception of humanity, Mathematics has always been the basis on which all natural and social sciences have been supported. Reciprocally, sciences have been the source of inspiration for most mathematical developments throughout history. In recent decades, technology has joined science in promoting Mathematics, demanding new mathematical developments capable of modelling such technology and predicting its behaviour. Similar to the case of science, this modern Mathematics is resulting in new technological advances. In BCAM, our goal is to be leaders in the discovery of the necessary Mathematics that contribute to a scientific and technological development oriented towards social welfare. That is, our goal is to write together the Mathematics of the future.
