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.
The Departments of Mathematics at Linköping University and Universidade Eduardo Mondlane(UEM), Mozambique, are since 2017 partners in the sub-programme Capacity Building in Mathematics, Statistics and Its Applications. The sub-programme is part of the bilateral UEM-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 UEM. On the Swedish side, the collaboration also includes Mälardalen University, Stockholm University, Uppsala University and Örebro University.
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.
