Germany-Africa maths research collaboration launched

African and German experts have identified five priority areas in mathematical sciences for collaborative research, which will be pursued over the next three years under a new initiative expected to build research networks and help advance maths in Africa. The Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft – the German Research Foundation or DFG – and the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences or AIMS, met for two days ahead of the Next Einstein Forum’s Global Gathering 2016 – “Connecting Science to Humanity” – a major science event being held in the Senegalese capital Dakar from 8-10 March. The meeting between African and German mathematicians started off as a topic-finding discussion in areas drawn from mathematical modelling in the life sciences and the physical sciences, optimisation, statistical modelling, geometry and topology, and algebraic structures. These fields are applied in agriculture, health and the economy, among other areas, to guide decision-making and policy-making.
