2017 CIMPA Research Schools call for projects
Proposals in applied mathematics or related to applications of mathematics are especially
Proposals in the most mathematically or economically deprived areas are encouraged and
will be given priority.
The aim of the International Centre for Pure and Applied Mathematics CIMPA is to promote
international cooperation in higher education and research in mathematics and their
interactions, as well as related subjects, for the benefit of developing countries. Our action
concentrates at the places where mathematics emerges and develops, and where a research
project is possible.
CIMPA is a UNESCO centre based in Nice, financed by France, Switzerland, Norway and
Spain, counting with the support of the University of Nice Sophia-Antipolis and the
University of Montpellier 2.
We organize research schools of about two weeks in developing countries. The purpose of
these schools is to contribute to the research training of the new generation of
mathematicians, women and men.
The Scientific Council and the Steering Council of CIMPA evaluate the projects and select the
best and most appropriate. The research schools are organized locally with the help of
CIMPA. CIMPA’s financial contribution is essentially for young mathematicians from
neighbouring countries to be able to attend the research school. CIMPA can help with
obtaining funds from other sources. Additional and essential information can be found in the
roadmap (available on the web site of CIMPA). You can also write to CIMPA for further
