French-Indian International Joint Unit (UMI) in mathematics

Arabinda Mitra, Head of the International Cooperation Division at the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology and Joël Bertrand, CNRS Chief Research Officer, signed an agreement on 12 January in New Dehli (India) for the creation of a French-Indian UMI in applied mathematics.

Based at the Indian Institute of Science in Bangalore, the Indo-French Center for Applied Mathematics (IFCAM) UMI aims to provide mathematicians from both countries with a collaboration platform in the fields of partial derivative equations, control theory, scientific calculation, statistical physics, dynamic systems, mathematical biology and large network modeling.

The IFCAM is a joint initiative between the Indian Ministry of Science and Technology and several French partners, including CNRS, Ecole Polytechnique, Ecole normale supérieure, INRIA, Université de Nice Sophia-Antipolis and Université de Toulouse III-Paul Sabatier.

This UMI will be used as a platform for scienitific cooperation with the rest of India, in particular with the Tata Institute of Fundamental Research in Bangalore, the Indian Institute of Technology in Bombay and the Indian Institute of Technology Kanpur.
