African Institute for Mathematical Sciences-Next Einstein Initiative
On 5th May 2016 the University of Glasgow signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences-Next Einstein Initiative (AIMS-NEI), which makes the School of Mathematics and Statistics a member of their new partnership programme. The agreement guarantees UoG lecturers from our School, who want to give a course at AIMS, a teaching slot in a centre of their choice without having to go through the usual application procedure. Several of our staff members intend to continue to contribute to AIMS' mission which we as a School also benefit from, as teaching there provides an excellent opportunity for postgraduate student recruitment.
A delegation of AIMS-NEI representatives visited Glasgow for a small signing ceremony at which the Uli Kraehmer and Ian Strachan presented them with one of the original prints of the notes of Einstein's 1933 lecture here at Glasgow. This will most likely be displayed in the future in new headquarters of AIMS in Rwanda.
