The mathematics programme consists of two components; cooperative support for researchers in pure mathematics in Norway and a strategic recruitment component to support recruiting one outstandingyoung researcher in pure mathematics at each of the universities in the programme. Both components are based on recommendations from the evaluation of mathematics in Norway by the Norwegian Research Council.
This component is designed to strengthen the research in pure mathemetics in Norway through national and international research cooperation, mobility schemes by the activities described below:
The aim with this component is to give an outstanding young researcher in pure mathematics good terms to build and lead a research group at each of the universities in the program. Program persiod is 4 years with possibilities for a 2 year’s prolongation.
The four young research leaders were selected after an international evaluation of the nominees and their research plans. The following candidates were selected to join the programme:
