The focus of this proposal is the transfer of mathematical knowledge to other areas of science, technology and industry, through a structured research center specially tailored for this purpose. All mathematical knowledge is ultimately applicable, if not directly, through other areas of knowledge. In some areas the application of mathematics is almost immediate. However, the practical implementation of such applicability is often hindered by ingrained incorrect traditions, misdirected scholarship and operational difficulties. In recent years, the growth of science in Brazil, and mathematics in particular, has been remarkable. However, the application of technology, often measured by patents, has not had the same success. To close this gap it is necessary to create institutional structures to establish bridges between the mathematical sciences and applications as a goal in itself. It is not just to guide the theoretical work to areas "potentially relevant" but to take applications to the last consequences, i.e., its effective implementation in the industry at large. One can no longer say that the application can be left to someone else. It is, in fact, a problem concerning all the community and reflects the necessary commitment of pure and applied science with the material and spiritual progress of society. The strategy of this project involves, first, the clustering of imp01iant groups in the areas of applied mathematics at the State of São Paulo and directing their work towards effective applications. The selected groups have demonstrated excellence in the scientific standard in the first place and in many cases, also in relevant applications. In the proposed CEPID participating groups will continue with their usual scientific activities, and at the same time, develop "technology transfer activities" according to the following: 1) master's and doctoral theses necessarily linked with applications in a broad sense, with co-supervision from experts in the applications sectors; 2) conduct at least an annual Transfer Workshop, with participating members of CEPID and representatives of industry, administration, services, educational and technological sectors; 3) regular visits by members of CEPID to institutions with potential for significant applications; 4) development of an online publication called in principle "Technology Transference Experiences" aiming at the consolidation of a more permanent publication.
