African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS)

The African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) is a pan-African network of centres of excellence for postgraduate education, research and outreach in mathematical sciences. AIMS South Africa is a centre for education and research in Cape Town, South Africa. AIMS South Africa was established in 2003 as a partnership project of the following 6 universities: Cambridge, Cape Town, Oxford, Paris Sud XI, Stellenbosch, and Western Cape. AIMS centres operate in Senegal, Ghana, Cameroon, and Tanzania. The goals of AIMS are To promote mathematics and science in Africa To recruit and train talented students and teachers To build capacity for African initiatives in education, research, and technology Science and technology are powerful forces for progress in global society and the global economy. For Africa to benefit fully from these forces it must build a strong indigenous capacity in both. Mathematics underpins most of modern life - information and communication technology, genetics, medicine, finance, demographics and planning. Without mathematical training Africans will be unable to access the full power of new technologies to solve their countries' problems. Through its graduate programme and public outreach activities, AIMS influences choices at school and university level, drawing bright young Africans into mathematical and scientific careers. Africa's greatest resource is its people. There can be no more effective investment in Africa's future than in education which empowers talented young people to contribute to their countries' development.
