Call: Program for Mathematics

The Knut and Alice Wallenberg Foundation in collaboration with the Royal Swedish Academy of Sciences have decided to support Swedish research in mathematics. The aim is for Sweden to recover its position at the international cutting edge by giving the best young researchers international experience and by recruiting young as well as more experienced mathematicians to Sweden.

Swedish research in mathematics has a longstanding tradition but has lost ground internationally during recent decades. Despite alarming reports about mathematics in the educational system there are a lot of competent Swedish students who measure up internationally and want to undertake doctoral studies in mathematics. Furthermore, there is a considerable demand for PhD-holding mathematicians in academia as well as in the commercial and industrial world. The Foundation is now funding up to SEK 200 m. during a six-year period in order to further develop Swedish research in mathematics.

The program includes several parts:
