About the EMS

The European Mathematical Society is a learned society representing mathematicians throughout Europe. It promotes the development of all aspects of mathematics in Europe, in particular mathematical research, relations of mathematics to society, relations to European institutions, and mathematical education. The EMS has as its members around 60 national mathematical societies in Europe, 40 mathematical research centres and departments, and 3000 individuals.

The governing body of the European Mathematical Society is its Council which meets once every two years. The work of the Society is mainly done through committees set up by the Executive Committee to cover all areas of mathematics.

The EMS also organises, assists or sponsors Scientific Activities, which includes lectures and specific appointments. The EMS is working hard to secure that more European funds are being spent for research and education in mathematical sciences.
