Centre of Excellence - Mathematical and Statistical Sciences

What is a Centre of Excellence (CoE)?

The National Department of Science and Technology (DST) and the National Research Foundation (NRF) awarded the CoE-MaSS to be hosted at Wits University.  

The CoE for Mathematical and Statistical Sciences will focus on two themes reflecting the pure and applied nature of the mathematical sciences. These themes are mathematics paradigms for the Earth and the environment, and mathematical, statistical and computational modelling of the Earth and the environment.

The CoE-MaSS will bring together mathematics and statistics researchers from numerous Institutions around South Africa to focus on advancing cross-disciplinary research topics and developing national capacity in these scarce fields.
