  • Donations
    The EMS asks its members and its friends for donations. Donations can be given to
    • support the initiatives and programs of the society itself (e.g.
      training activities, grants for young people to participate in scientific activities, etc.)
    • support the work of the EMS Committee for Developing Countries The EMS is pleased to show its gratitude to its donors by publishing their names on the web page Thanks to EMS donors.
  • Horizon 2020, The EU Framework Programme for Research and Innovation Now is the crucial moment to influence the negotiations that are taking place at the political level. To strengthen the role of the European Research Council is a high priority, since this is one of the most successful instruments for science and in particular, for mathematics.
    Actions at the national level are strongly encouraged, for example approaching your national officers responsible for science, research, innovation and also cooperation, and the members of the European Parliament.

    • Soc. Math. Appl. & Industr. (SMAI), France *The first French Job Forum for Mathematics was held on January 26, 2012 in Paris: employment opportunities for students, PhD students and young PhDs in mathematics.
      The aim was to present job opportunities both in Academia and in companies and services to master students, engineering students, graduate students and young doctors in mathematics.
    • In December 2011 the inauguration of AMIES took place in Grenoble.
      AMIES is the French Agency for the interactions of Mathematics with the
      Industry and the Society. AMIES is based on a network of regional correspondents who have two roles:
      they promote links between the companies, laboratories and universities of their respective regions they monitor technological progress in their respective technical areas and help AMIES' stakeholders to understand and benefit from it. AMIES will organize modelling weeks and internships and will try to coordinate the activities in this field taking place in all French universities.
