With the orientation marked by the general objective of PET MSO-ED, the set of specific objectives to be achieved in PET MSO-ED are:

O1.- To analyze and overcome the existing limitations in the transfer of Mathematical Technologies towards the industry in the national panorama. The current moment requires a joint analysis of the different actors involved in the transfer of mathematical technology to the business and industrial sector (institutes, networks, companies, business associations among others) to face the challenge towards a Digital Connected Industry 5.0. and to detect new technological demands.
O2.- To increase the presence of mathematical methods and techniques in the productive fabric as a support to the migration towards a Connected Industry 4.0, and towards a Digital Industry 5.0. To this end, tutorials will be developed on detailed success stories focused on more effective innovation thanks to the application of mathematical technology, such as, for example, those necessary for a Smart Industry 4.0 and a Connected Digital Industry 5.0. An updated directory of researchers and research centers involved in the MSO-ED tool tutorials as well as the industrial partners involved in each case will be included. All interested parties will have open access to this database of MSO-ED tool tutorials, classified by industrial sectors, by Society Challenges of the State R&D&I Plan 2017-2020, by Horizon Europe Global Challenges, and by type of application.
O3.- Promote and coordinate competitive projects and national knowledge transfer contracts in which industry actively participates. The PET MSO-ED platform will promote private funding in R&D&I in Spain based on public-private collaboration, and in this way, it will try to collaborate in the adaptation of research lines to the great present and future challenges of today's society. Participation in CDTI projects will be promoted, in competitive projects oriented to the challenges of society, and in the establishment of R+D+i Academy-Industry transfer contracts.
O4.- To promote public-private collaboration. Meetings, exchanges and workshops between companies and R&D&I centers will be promoted to encourage and promote the incorporation of new mathematical technologies, at the level of knowledge, tools and techniques, in the innovation processes of the industry. The platform will allow flexible access to all the services offered: MSO-ED technologies, tutorials, training, access to specialized researchers, access to other existing Spanish and European infrastructures, or to be advised individually by technology translators from the participating entities. Thanks to these initiatives to bring the academic and industrial spheres closer together, the incorporation of new members interested in the platform's activities and services will be facilitated, and there will be a greater guarantee of success in Objective O3.
O5.- To promote the internationalization of knowledge transfer. Special emphasis will be placed on participation in European projects (Horizon 2020 and Horizon Europe type programs). To this end, collaboration with the European network European Service Network of Mathematics for Industry and Innovation (EU-MATHS-IN), and with its 17 national networks belonging to as many European countries, will be essential to promote participation in consortia of large projects to Spanish companies and knowledge centers.
O6.- Consolidate the Spanish node of EU-MATHS-IN. The Spanish Mathematics-Industry Network (math-in) is the Spanish node of EU-MATHS-IN since the year of its foundation in 2013. The PET MSO-ED platform will work cohesively with math-in to become a communication channel in Spain, in all aspects of MSO-ED technologies, facilitating the dialogue between companies, business associations, universities, research centers, and working in coordination with their transfer units and R+D+i departments. Establish coordination mechanisms for technology translators belonging to the participating entities, facilitating communication both within the academic and industrial world, and establishing a guide of best practices based on the experience of European entities with the best practices in this field. All this will result in an increase of the role that the Spanish node of EU-MATHS-IN will play at European level.
O7.- Promote new alliances and consolidate existing ones. The aim is to facilitate and promote the development of a national infrastructure that works in coordination with all agents to disseminate, detect emerging challenges, develop advanced and adapted technologies, and promote the transfer of knowledge in the field of mathematics. This coordinated approach of all the agents involved will allow the experience and infrastructures of the participating entities to be used more effectively, involving social agents, adding value to innovation projects and investments at all levels, and promoting Spanish leadership in the European industry. Throughout this path, special attention will be paid to increasing female leadership throughout the communication and work chain.
O8.- Disseminate the platform's activities and initiatives. Specific actions will be carried out to disseminate progress among the different stakeholders: academia, industry, science policy makers, and society in general. The aim of the objective is multiple: to raise awareness of the great potential of mathematics in the challenges that society needs to solve, to incorporate new public and private entities in the platform, and to make more visible the return to society of the results of research activity financed mainly by public funds. In all outreach activities, the participation of women in relevant presentations will be promoted.
