Sida/SAREC-Funded NUR-LiU Cooperation in Mathematics

Since 2007, the Department of Mathematics participates in a Sida/SAREC-funded project together with the National University of Rwanda (NUR), Butare, Rwanda.

The project has two objectives.

  • The first is to strengthen the Department of Mathematics at NUR by training its staff to Masters and eventually PhD level; this will provide Rwanda with graduates with a background in mathematics, with a broad knowledge and with the experience needed to work successfully as mathematicians in industry and at university.
  • The second objective is to develop the MSc program in applied mathematics at NUR through the involvement of LiU staff.
