"Mathematics for Humanity" international programme at ICMS

In 2023 the International Center for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS, Edinburgh, UK) launched a new program of international activities in the mathematical sciences devoted to education, research and scholarly exchange with the potential for direct relevance to the betterment of humanity. This has been made possible by a generous donation from Alex Gerko, Founder of XTX Markets.

Applicants are invited to submit proposals belonging to one of the three themes for a satellite event at any location in the world that is optimal for impact, accessibility, and sustainability. As part of this effort, we expect to be able to fund up to ten global workshops for humanity with a maximum budget of 35,000 GBP each.

The ICMS invites proposals for activities that revolve around three inter-related themes:

A. Integrating the global research community (GRC)

B. Mathematical challenges for humanity (MCH)

C. Global history of mathematics (GHM)

The 2024 call for proposals is now out, and the deadline is June 1st, 2024.
