The project aimed at exploitation and use of mathematics, coupled with social and economic sciences in the study of cultural dynamics and the social process of cultural transmission, including drawing up a strategic picture of European resources, networks and their use of mathematics in fields relevant to cultural dynamics, so as to identify and pursue new opportunities for better understanding the social processes of culture transmission; developing cross-disciplinary research methods for collaborative activity between mathematics and the social sciences; and establishing growth curve of activities with mathematics in cultural dynamics and a long term integration between the fields through a programme of collaborative events and researcher training and mobility.
