An International Hub for Mathematics in the Center of Europe
The University of Bonn in Germany has a long tradition in the field of mathematics, home for decades to many world-renowned mathematicians, includign Felix Hausdorff. In 2006, the Hausdorff Center for Mathematics was established as Germany’s first and only ‘Cluster of Excellence’ in Mathematics – to act as an international center and hub for experts in the field.
The Hausdorff Center for Mathematics (HCM) capitalizes on a broad vision of mathematics, ranging from pure mathematics, to contributions to quantative modeling in economics and the natural sciences, to industrial applications. HCM strives to serve the international mathematical community as a platform for exchange and research.
Promotion of early-career researchers is also a top priority of the Hausdorff Center, including three main components: the Bonn International Graduate School of Mathematics (BIGS), the Hausdorff School for postdocs, and the Bonn Junior Fellow (BJF) program.
Bonn’s history, its support for young researchers, and it’s collaborative atmosphere make it one of the best places in the world to do matheamtics.
