Our activities (past, present and future)

We started work in earnest in 2002. Since then we have expanded our aims and been involved in a number of projects.

Our members

The committee consists of about ten members, most of whom are engaged in development work in their capacity as heads of various such projects, e.g.

Members are also active in other committees for developing countries around the world, notably within

In addition to committee members we have associates who help us in our work, in many ways. We are full of ideas, and there is lots of work to be done. We do not receive regular funding from our parent society EMS, and so desperately need help from all mathematicians!

We regularly receive donations from reviewers of Zentralblatt. In 2010, we had an donation of 578.29 Euros from one Japanese reviewer, which was wonderful.
