Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM) research techniques and results are fundamental to the development of industrial innovation. Given the increasingly profound connection between innovation, science, and mathematical sciences, it is natural to inquire whether the interface between these three activities is functioning in an optimal way via STEM teachings and researches. We believe that these STEM teachings and researches are somewhat strengthened and essentially driven by industrial mathematics. However, due to the nature of industrial mathematics as an enabling technology for the new industry, its contribution is rarely visible in the final product that the industry delivers. Our research focusing on specific problem-solving in collaboration with academics and industry practitioners.
