ThierryKIGALI,– THE partnership between the Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS) and Rwanda will culminate in the establishment of AIMS Rwanda Centre of Excellence.

Other announcements made in Kigali include the establishment of the AIMS Secretariat (Operations) in Rwanda and establishing the global headquarters of the Next Einstein Forum (NEF) in the country.

AIMS Rwanda Centre of Excellence, which will be a pan-African facility of excellence in mathematical science, is set to open in August.

Thierry Zomahoun, President and Chief Executive Officer of AIMS-NEI, said at the invitation of President Paul Kagame, AIMS would join the science and innovation ecosystem that the government was building with the goal of being a continental hub in technology.

“AIMS sees Rwanda as a conducive environment for its initiatives and we look forward to collaborating and supporting the local and regional research community.”

The establishment of an AIMS Centre in Rwanda will support to build Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics (STEM) expertise.

It is set to strengthen the scientific community in Rwanda and the region through an innovative Mathematical Sciences curriculum, relevant to development issues facing Rwanda and
the region.

The centre will aims to raise the international profile of Rwanda and the region and its scientific community, by bringing in world-class renowned scientists including Nobel Prize winners, Fields Medallists and other highly distinguished academics as well growing the pool of skilled mathematical scientists and problem-solvers in Rwanda and the region.
