CNRS Mathematics, formerly knowned as the National Institute for Mathematical Sciences and their Interactions (INSMI), is endowed with the national mission of developing and coordinating research in all different domains of mathematics. It helps structure and support research on a national scale, develop collaborations with the international scientific network and foster interface with other scientific disciplines as well as interactions with companies and society. CNRS Mathematics also supports activities of dissemination towards the younger ones and the general public, with a particular concern for the commitment of young women in mathematics.

Created in 2023, the “*Universe of Mathematics*” map visually represents the fields of mathematical research and demonstrates how mathematics addresses concrete questions in our daily lives. This project is just one of many supported by CNRS Mathematics for mathematicians and their dissemination activities, as well as the wider mathematics ecosystem, the general public and anyone curious.
