Research Programme

MATH+, the Berlin Mathematics Research Center, is a cross-institutional and interdisciplinary Cluster of Excellence. It sets out to explore and further develop new approaches in application-oriented mathematics. Emphasis is placed on mathematical principles for using ever larger amounts of data in life and material sciences, in energy and network research, and in the humanities and social sciences.

MATH+ is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG, German Research Foundation) under Germany´s Excellence Strategy (EXC-2046/1, project ID 390685689) for a first period of seven years since January 2019. It is a joint project of the three major universities in Berlin – Freie Universität Berlin, Humboldt-Universität zu Berlin, and Technische Universität Berlin – as well as the Weierstrass Institute for Applied Analysis and Stochastics (WIAS) and the Zuse Institute Berlin (ZIB). MATH+ continues the success stories of the renowned Research Center Matheon and the Excellence-Graduate School Berlin Mathematical School (BMS).

Equality and Diversity Measures in the EXC 2046: MATH+

The programme’s equal opportunities and diversity measures are marked by the following priorities:

  • Gender equality and diversity awareness of faculty members
  • Mentoring, gender and diversity activities in the Berlin Mathematical School (BMS)
  • Recruitment of women on all career levels
  • Strengthening the effect of female role models and the visibility of female researchers (for example: Kovalevskaya Lunches)
  • The MATH+ Hanna Neumann Fellowships for female postdocs
  • Young African Mathematicians (YAM) Fellowships
  • Institutional Research: MATH+ as a Research Object
  • Networking within institutional structures to support gender equality and diversity
  • Implementation of collegiality and diversity guidelines

Learn more about each point of action on the website.
