Aim Data, in its many forms and across various disciplines, is becoming an essential source for research in the 21st century. In fact, data driven knowledge extraction nowadays constitutes one of the core paradigms for scientific discovery. Therefore, the development of efficient techniques for the integration of large data sets is more necessary than ever. Mathematics offers efficient methodologies from its various well-developed subfields for achieving this goal. Recognising the broad scientific expertise at the Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences within the scope of data science, our initiative aims at bundling the corresponding efforts and activities in order to consolidate and advance research on Mathematics of Data.
