Institutional Grant project

In 2005 STINT approved funding for a project in the Institutional Grants Programme (IGP) to establish cooperation between the Department of Mathematical Statistics in Lund and several universities in Australia and South Korea in a period of four years started in January 2006. The main foreign partner is Professor Peter Hall in the Department of Mathematics and Statistics at the University of Melbourne. The collaboration will be extended by entering into an agreement with the Centre for Mathematics and Statistics of Complex Systems (MASCOS). Detailed information on MASCOS can be found in their homepage but a brief history follows. MASCOS was established by the Australian Research Council (ARC) a couple of years ago and it comprises 13 Chief Investigators from The University of Melbourne, Australian National University, The University of New South Wales, The University of Queensland and La Trobe University. In addition, we also plan to collaborate with a couple of other universities which are not directly involved in the MASCOS, namely University of Western Australia, University of Sydney and University of Suwon, Suwon, South Korea.

The IGP-project aims at initiating joint research projects in different levels between department of Mathematical Statistics at Lund University and the above mentioned foreign partners in Australia and South Korea. Another main objective is to develop joint graduate courses in several universities involved in the program.

Instructions on how to find the Centre for Mathematical Sciences can be found here.
