Eastern Africa Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP)
The network EAUMP was constituted in 2002 by the Department of Mathematics at University of Nairobi (UoN) Kenya, University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM) Tanzania and Makerere University (Uganda). A few years later the Departments of Mathematics at University of Zambia (UNZA) Zambia and University of Rwanda (UR) also joined the network. The network is coordinated by Prof Patrick Weke, UoN.
In 2018 the network reported
- 8 PhD-graduations (3 local and 5 sandwich).
- 56 MSc-graduations.
- 38 publications in scientific journals
plus a number of conference contributions
The network also organized
- "The 2018 EAUMP Summer School and workshop on Homological Methods in Algebra and Geometry" at university of Dar es Salaam from 8 to 28 July 2018, in collaboration with ICTP,
- a workshop on "PDEs and Calculus of Variation" at the Department of Mathematics, UDSM, 1-5 October, 2018. The workshop was support by AIMS –Germany Research Chair under the Alexander Von Humboldt program, and co-organised with AIMS-Tanzania,
- "The 3rd Network Meeting for Sida- and ISP funded PhD students and Postdocs in Mathematics" with the theme: strengthening Research in Mathematics in Universities with Sida and ISP support. This meeting aimed at forming regional research groups in different fields of mathematics.
The objectives of the network are:
- Enhancement of postgraduate training with special emphasis to PhD training.
- Establishing and strengthening collaborative research in Mathematics areas of interest in the region.
- Strengthening the collaborating Mathematics departments in terms of equipment and literature.
- Development of resources for the collaborating Mathematics Departments.
- Postdoctoral training of academic staff.
EAUMP News and Events
- EAUMP - ICTP Summer School on Algebraic Topology and its Applications will be held in Kampala 15 July - 2 August 2019.
- An evaluation of the network was performed during 2016, and is now available.
