University of Seville

Universidad de Sevilla

4 San Fernando Str. Sevilla 41004, Spain

The University of Seville (US) is made up of more than 70,000 students, 4,400 professors, and 2,400 administrative staff, which provides an integral offer of teaching, research, culture and technology transfer. This makes it one of the most complete institutions of Knowledge Management in the Spanish panorama.

The University of Seville has been ranked 49th in the world, and first in Spain, in the mathematical research of the Shanghai Ranking of 2017 (it also appears among the 100 best centers in the world in Mathematics since 2013 in the ranking of the National Taiwan University).

The creation of the Mathematics Institute of the University of Seville (IMUS) by the regional Government of Andalusia Region in 2007, is another sign of the strength of Mathematics at the University of Seville. Its scope is to promote and support the research in all areas of mathematics in the University of Sevilla. The strength of the integration fostered by the IMUS is shown by the existence of a common program of activities with unified funding. During the last years the IMUS has organized and managed (among many other actions):
• 182 workshops, schools and conferences (many related to technological transfer).
• 75 PhD Courses within the Doctorate Program “Mathematics”.
• 5 Doc-Courses (which include courses, monitored research training and presentations of results).
• 407 colloquia and seminars.
• 200 guests per year.

Moreover, the Mathematical Technology Transfer Service has been created aimed at establishing contacts with industry to develop joint industrial mathematics projects.

The University of Naples Federico II was established in 1224 through an Imperial Charter of Frederick II Hohenstaufen, King of Sicily and Holy Roman Emperor. Nowadays the university offers courses in essentially all academic disciplines, leading to circa one hundred fifty graduate level degrees. Research facilities provide support to all these courses. Current student enrolment nears 80,000 and the academic personnel, at this time, is 3096. The university is made up of four Schools – the Polytechnic and Basic Sciences School, the School of Medicine, the School of Agriculture and Veterinary Medicine and the School of Human and Social Sciences – and 26 Departments which operate as semi-independent bodies for the teaching and research management being anyway part of a School.

In addition, it includes a cluster of fourteen highly specialized Museums.

The Department of Mathematics and Applications “Renato Caccioppoli” collects the mathematicians coming from the Istitute of Mathematics and the Engineering Department.

It is formed by over 100 senior members, 19 collaborator members and 30 junior members. The department research involes several fields of mathematics and its applications. In particular for what concerns on mathematical analysis and modelling the research activity is focused on Analytical-geometrical properties of solutions of PDE’s, Calculus of variations and geometric measure theory, Nonlinear analysis, dynamical systems and PDE’s, Variational analysis and optimization, Hyperbolic PDE’s and pseudo differential operators, Computational science and high speed computing,

Mathematical models and methods for pure and applied sciences.

Moreover 15 workshops and conferences are organized every year by some members of the department. There are about 70 colloquia and seminars per year. The Doctoral School in Mathematics and Applications, in collaboration with the Istituto Nazionale di Alta Matematica “Francesco Severi” (CIAFM consortium) is now at XXXIII Cycle. For each cycle there are about 7 students. The Department provides a Bachelor Degree Programme in Mathematics and two Master’s Degree Programmes: Mathematics and Mathematical Engineering.

Both the research activity and the teaching activity have been evaluated of high level by the National Ministry Committees.

The Faculty of Mathematics and Mechanics (FMM) at Tomsk State University (TSU) has wide experience of teaching mathematical disciplines including in the field of the mathematical modeling. Actually, 77 teachers work at the FMM, including 1 corresponding member of the Russian Academy of Sciences, 1 corresponding member of Russian Academy of Education, 2 – Honored Scientist of the Russian Federation, 1 – Federal Professor of Mathematics, 23 Doctors of Sciences, 45 Ph. Doctors, 31 “Honorary Professional education” professors. The faculty includes 8 departments: algebra, geometry, mathematical analysis, function theory, general mathematics, computational mathematics and computer modeling, theoretical mechanics, physical and computational mechanics; 4 research laboratories: algebra and topology, computational geophysics, modeling and prediction of catastrophes, heat and mass transfer modeling; and 2 training laboratories. During its existence, the faculty has trained about 5000 specialists in mathematics, mechanics and computer sciences, who work in all regions of Russia, as well as in the near and far abroad. The training of bachelors, undergraduates and postgraduates at the MMF is carried out using modern computers located in five display classes of the faculty connected to the Internet and a supercomputer of TSU Cyberia with a peak performance of 120 TFlops.

University of the Philippines (UP) Diliman
originally founded by the United States more than a century ago, is the biggest and most important of the country. There are several campus spread in the Philippines, which in general have only some specific a local direction but all are part of the general UP system, under a Chancellor. The institution policy is to attract the best student from all the country (Quezon City, Manille, Los Baños, Mindanao, Baguio, Visayas) and give them financial support. The biggest campus, UP located in Quezon City (Metro Manila) has all the faculties and is the most important for research, in particular in mathematics where the research is very good and of international level. UP is a partner of URN and the cooperation started in 2006 in the project IMAMIS for the organisation of courses by French professors at the Master level in cooperation with a local professor. The contact in Rouen was Patrizia Donato, scientific coordinator of this MAM EMJDM project and the contact in the Philippine was Marian Roque, now head of the Institute of Mathematics of this university. The cooperation was strengthen in the framework of the Erasmus Mundus Action 2 IMPAKT programme coordinated by URN (student and staff exchange). UP will provide a high level of dissemination in Asia and will contribute to the implementation of the project activities.

Federal University of Paraiba, Joao Pessoa (UFPB)
is a Brazilian public university established in 1955. Located in State of Paraíba, Northeast Brazil, the UFPB has played a key role by promoting learning, research and creative social solutions serving national and international communities. Currently, the UFPB counts with 4 campuses, approximately 2,340 professors, 138 undergraduate courses having more than 45,000 students, 66 master programmes and 37 PhD programmes. In addition, the institution has 513 laboratories of academic support to undergraduate and graduate courses, a Central Library and 14 Sectoral Libraries. The UFPB is a common partner of the MAM institutions. The UFPB will provide a large dissemination in South-America (other Brazilian universities in particular), help to attract students from the region and provide professors and researchers suitable to participate in all related activities (Fágner Dias Araruna (Associated Professor), João Marcos Bezerra do Ó (Full Professor), Damião Júnio Araújo (Adjunto Professor) at UFPB).

Southeast Asian Mathematical Society (SEAMS)

is a non-stock, non-profit mathematical organisation. This regional organisation will contribute indirectly to the implementation of specific tasks/activities (providing courses within the Master or in related Summer Schools) and/or support the dissemination and sustainability of the EMJMD. Such contribution may for example take the form of knowledge and skills transfer, the provision of complementary courses or backing possibilities for secondment or placement. The SEAMS will also have an important role as an advisor in the field of Mathematics in Asia (necessary for the additional grants for this region) and provide assistance in recruiting the best students.

Unione Mathematica Italiana (UMI)
has been invited in the project as an associate partner and will be specifically in charge of the external evaluation of the programme. UMI aims to monitor, promote and disseminate the development of Mathematical Sciences and their applications by disseminating the results and not for profit. It is based in the University of Bologna (Italy) at the Department of Mathematics.
