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 four networks in mathematics are supported by ISP - two in East Africa (EAUMP and EANWoBAS), one in West Africa (PDE, Modelling and Control) and one in South East Asia (SEAMaN). All four networks have as a goal to create a critical mass of researchers and students in their respective regions. 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.

Upcoming event: 4th Network Meeting for Sida and ISP Funded PhD Students and Postdocs in Mathematics, 5-9 August 2019, in Debre Zeit, Ethiopia
