The Departments of Mathematics at Linköping University and the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Cambodia, are since 2019 partners in the sub-programme Capacity Building in Mathematics, Statistics and Its Applications. The sub-programme is part of the bilateral RUPP-Sweden Programme, a research training partnership programme funded by the Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida). The sub-programme is coordinated by the Department of Mathematics at LiU and the Department of Mathematics at RUPP. On the Swedish side, the collaboration also includes Stockholm University.
Building capacity for teaching and research in Mathematics and Statistics in Cambodia
The main goal of the sub-programme is to provide Cambodia with Master's graduates having a strong and broad background in Mathematics and Statistics. This is accomplished through training in new Master's programmes in Mathematics and Statistics at RUPP. Another goal is to increase the research output of the Departments of Mathematics at RUPP. For this, funds for research visits will be available, staff will be supported to participate in international conferences, and conferences and workshops will be arranged in Cambodia.
