AIMS group

Building collaborations between between Imperial academics and scientists across Africa


We are now accepting applications.

The College has recently signed a partnership agreement with the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences (AIMS).

AIMS was founded by an Imperial alumnus, Neil Turok, and currently has six centres across Africa in South Africa, Senegal, Ghana, Cameroon, Tanzania and Rwanda.  The AIMS centres are hubs of excellence in postgraduate education, research and outreach in mathematical sciences.

There are already a number of existing links between College academics and the AIMS centres in areas such as statistics, public health, machine learning and climate change, and we hope that the agreement will foster further partnerships.

Internal Funding

In order to encourage collaborations, the International Relations Office has funds available to support flights and accommodation for College staff wishing to visit any of the six AIMS centres. 

Please get in touch with the International Relations Office for more information about using these funds.
