Transforming the World

through Mathematics


The MATH+ Spotlight talks aim to strengthen the connections between ongoing research projects in MATH+ and keep MATH+ members up to date with what’s currently happening in the Cluster. They are meant to foster relations between and across Applications Areas and Emerging Fields as well as Incubator and Transfer projects. At the same idea, BMS Phase I students can get ideas for their dissertation topics. In each talk, the (post) doctoral researchers from the projects shine a spotlight onto their scientific work.

What: A 30 min talk from and about one of the MATH+ projects + 15 min of Q&A
When: Wednesdays at 12:00 (noon)
How often: Every two weeks during lecture time
Where:  Online
