Eastern Africa Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP)

The network EAUMP was constituted in 2002 by the Department of Mathematics at Makerere University (Uganda), University of Dar es Salaam (UDSM, Tanzania) and  University of Nairobi (UoN, Kenya). A few years later the Departments of Mathematics at University of Rwanda (UR) and University of Zambia (UNZA) also joined the network.

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 Variations" 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.
