Abstract [en]

The Eastern Africa Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP) was launched in 2002 by the International Science Programme (ISP) with support fromthe Swedish International Development Cooperation Agency (Sida) in collaboration with the Departments of Mathematics at University of Nairobi, Kenya; University of Dar es Salaam, Tanzania; and Makerere University, Uganda. The Mathematics Departments of the University of Rwanda and the University of Zambia joined the EAUMP network in the late 2000s. The main activities of the network have consisted of capacity building via training PhD and MSc students; organizing mathematics Conferences and Summer schools; network exchange visits and coordinator meetings; research visits for postdocs to Sweden and elsewhere; as well as support for building up equipment and for research expenses. The total ISP support to EAUMP for the period 2002-2016 was 29,259,902 SEK or (at the current exchange rates) EUR 2.99M or USD 3.12M.

It is the view of the Evaluation Team that the EAUMP network has played an absolutely essential and transformative role, at a reasonable and proportionate cost, in building mathematics research and teaching capacity throughout the Eastern African region, introducing new areas of mathematics and strengthening existing ones. There are signs of consolidating and emerging research groups, regular activities becoming embedded and finding additional support, as well as new types of activity. The continuing support, in a suitable form and shape, and taking into account the recommendations below, of mathematics, the most fundamental of enabling sciences, in the East African region is a worthwhile endeavour fully in accordance with the aims and objectives of ISP and its main funder Sida.
