Research Groups

History of Network Research Groups

The ideas of creating regional research groups started in the early years of the second decade of 2000. This was as a result of increased capacity and volume of research out puts coming from both Sida and ISP supported PhD students and PostDocs in Mathematics. Hence, there was urgent need to create sustainable structures of regional research cooperation as one of the exit strategies for the heavy Swedish support to Mathematics in the region. The first meeting took place at Sida headquarters in Stockholm in 2017. The actual formation of regional research groups took place in Entebbe, Uganda in August 2018. Later in September 2019, the research groups met in Bishoftu, Ethiopia. The planned 2020 research groups meeting in Arusha,Tanzania could not take place due to covid 19.  The future of regional research collaboration is clearly resting in the regional research groups. The research groups have started attracting funding calls. The first such funding call targeting the regional research groups was by ISP in the early months of 2021. The call received over whelming response and results are eagerly awaited by the research groups.
