The Platform MAP is composed of:

  • 10 specialized societies,
  • 3 commissions,
  • 11 national committees or contact points of international scientific organisations.

They build together the MAP Plenum. While the specialized societies have the main task of representing and developing their discipline, the commissions are entrusted with specific tasks within the areas of mathematics, astronomy or physics. The connection to the international specialized organizations is ensured by national committees or national contact points.
