The International Programme in the Mathematical Sciences (IPMS)

Since the start in 2002, around 40 students - supported with ISP funds to various degree - have obtained a PhD-degree, many more MSc's have been trained and hundreds of scientific articles have been published in International journals. A number of conferences, workshops and schools have been organized.


Currently eight networks in mathematics are supported by ISP - two in East Africa (EAUMPand EANWoBAS), one in West Africa (PDE, Modelling and Control), one in South East Asia (SEAMaN), and since 1 July 2021 four more (APREA, CoRS, EAALG and PDEAPP) with members from countries across Africa. Training of master students within the networks is performed on a regional level and training of doctoral students is partly done regionally, but also in collaboration with scientists from Sweden and other countries, mainly in Europe.

African Mathematics Seminar (AfMS) is a weekly online seminar open for all, that was launched during the pandemic in 2020. The organizers are alternating through the different African countries while giving different regions their chance to host the seminar. The idea to introduce the seminar came from Dr Jared Ongaro at University of Nairobi.
