Promoting mathematical excellence in developing countries.
LML External Fellow Stefano Luzzatto is the Scientific Coordinator of the International Mathematics Master (IMM). LML provides essential administrative and organisational support for the IMM, as well as funding for special events, such as the inauguration ceremony, and special student needs.
The IMM is a prestigious two-year degree aimed at the very best graduate students with an interest in further study at a PhD level in any area of mathematics.
Courses are hosted within an existing institution in a developing country, and taught by prestigious international faculty.
The first IMM programme was launched in September 2019 at the Lahore campus of the COMSATS University Islamabad (CUI) in Pakistan. In the first cohort of students, ten came from Pakistan and two from Nigeria.
A formal inauguration ceremony was held on 30 October 2019 in Lahore, attended by the Italian Ambassador to Pakistan, Stefano Pontecorvo, the Rector of CUI, Raheel Qamar, and Scientific Coordinator, Stefano Luzzatto from ICTP.
The full vision and mission statement is posted on the International Mathematics Master’s website.
