Our goal is to train qualified academics who can contribute to improving teaching and learning of Mathematics and Statistics as well as conduct research and solving problems in the private and public sectors in Mozambique.
Building research capacity in Mathematics and Statistics in Mozambique
The main goal of the sub-programme is to provide Mozambique with PhD and MSc graduates having a strong and broad background in Mathematics. This is accomplished through training PhD students both in Sweden and South Africa as well as through training in new MSc programmes in Mathematics and Statistics at UEM. Another goal is to increase the research output of the Departments of Mathematics at UEM. For this, postdoc fellowships will be awarded, staff will be supported to participate in international conferences, and research workshops will be arranged. A third important goal is to strengthen collaboration between the Departments of Mathematics at UEM and mathematics departments in the Eastern African region.
