New maths collaboration in Mozambique

With a grant from Sida, the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency, Linköping University’s Department of Mathematics can commence an educational project in a fourth African country, Mozambique, together with the Universidade Eduardo Mondlane (UEM).

The project involves the development and teaching of two master’s programmes (mathematics and statistics), the development of a local doctoral programme, the training of UEM doctoral students and post-docs in Sweden and South Africa, as well as collaboration regarding conferences and schools.

LiU’s Department of Mathematics has previously led or participated in similar projects in Rwanda, Tanzania and Uganda.

University campusSida is funding the project with SEK 21 million from July 2017 to December 2022.

“At the Swedish end, LiU is collaborating with Luleå University of Technology, Stockholm University, Uppsala University, Örebro University and Mälardalen University College,” says Bengt Ove Turesson, senior lecturer at the Department of Mathematics and coordinator of the Swedish part of the project with UEM. He was previously in charge of coordination for the research programme in Rwanda.
