Dutch and German Mathematics Research Centers continue their successful collaboration

On October 17, 2016, Prof. Kees Vuik (TU Delft) on behalf of 4TU.AMI (Applied Mathematics Institute of the 4 Technical Universities in the Netherlands), and Prof. Martin Skutella (TU Berlin) on behalf of Research Center Matheon, signed a cooperative agreement between these two research centres.

“The similar mission of this cooperation is to bring advanced mathematics to key technologies and complex systems”, agree Vuik and Skutella. “We do this in the confident expectation that working together will add value to the separate efforts of the two centers.”

This agreement is a continuation of the previous (2010-2015) successful cooperation period on Mathematics for Key Technologies. The cooperation is declared for a period of 6 years.

Matheon and 4TU.AMI form one of the largest clusters in the field of application-oriented mathematics in Europe. 4TU.AMI joins researchers from the four Technical Universities of the Netherlands – TU Delft, Eindhoven University of Technology, University of Twente and University of Wageningen. The Research Center Matheon is a collaboration between mathematicians from TU Berlin, FU Berlin, HU Berlin, Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics WIAS, and Zuse Institute Berlin ZIB.

The renewed agreement establishes a framework for mutual assistance in achieving their aims in the field of application-driven mathematics and education. It will support collaborative research, relationships, exchange of students, junior and senior researchers, educational programs in mathematical modelling and its applications, e-learning and didactics of mathematics for university students, and programs that stimulate interest in mathematics for secondary school students.
