Invitation to program launch, 24th April 2024

Spain and Latin America share a profound heritage, deeply rooted in a multifaceted tapestry of economic, cultural, historical, and linguistic relations. Through this intricate web of connections, both regions continue to nurture a relationship characterized by cooperation, mutual respect, and shared aspirations.

Within this context, the Institute of Mathematical Sciences (ICMAT) launches, in collaboration with the Institute of the Mathematical Sciences of the Americas (IMSA), the new program “Enhancing mathematical bridges between Spain and Latin America”. This initiative seeks to formalize and strengthen cooperation between the mathematical communities of Spain and Latin America, establishing a research platform which will facilitate knowledge exchange, as well as contribute to the creation of a new generation of researchers in both regions.

Some of the main objectives of this scheme are:

  • An exchange program to allow Latin American researchers to conduct visits at ICMAT.
  • A series of thematic conferences and workshops, organized in collaboration with IMSA.
  • Opportunities for young Latin American researchers to take part in ICMAT’s training programs, at a doctoral and postdoctoral level.

It is envisaged that these activities will commence in the year 2025.

You are cordially invited to attend the program launch, which will take place at the Instituto de Ciencias Matemáticas (13-15 Nicolás Cabrera, 28049, Madrid) on Wednesday 24th April 2024, between 10am and 2pm.
