Cooperation
  • International School for Advanced Studies (SISSA) in Trieste. This is a 3-year exchange agreement beginning in 2005 per which postdocs and researchers of each institution will visit the other for a period of one month between January 2006 and December 2008. This project has the financial support from the Italian Ministry of Education and Research (MIUR), of SISSA, and the CNA.
  • Applied Mathematics ICTI Program: A joint CMU-Portugal PhD Program. Members of the CNA are directly involved in the management and scientific direction of the Applied Mathematics ICTI Program: A joint CMU-Portugal PhD Program. The Information and Communication Technologies Institute is a five year ``virtual" institution with poles in Portugal (ICTI@Portugal ) and at Carnegie Mellon University (ICTI@CMU). The ICTI Program in Applied Mathematics offers Ph.D. and postdoctoral training in Applied Analysis and in Probability, Stochastic Analysis and their Applications. Ph.D. graduates of the program will earn two doctoral degrees, one from Carnegie Mellon University and the other from the Portuguese partners in association, currently the Universidade Tecnica de Lisboa (UTL), the Universidade de Lisboa (UL), and the Universidade Nova de Lisboa (UNL). Trainees in the program are fully funded by the Portuguese Fundação para a Ciência e a Tecnologia.
  • Pittsburgh and Santiago Collaborative Effort on PDEs: Preparatory Workshops. Two workshops, funded by NSF award DMS 0536756 to the CNA, paved the way for the CNA and its Chilean partners -- the Departamento de Ingenieria Matematica and the Centro de Modelamiento Matematico (CMM) at the University of Chile (Santiago, Chile) -- to further develop and strengthen the research and training interactions between these two groups. Several neighboring institutions with which there is a collaborative history, including the University of Pittsburgh and the Facultad de Matematicas, Pontificia Universidad Católica de Chile, were involved in this project. More details may be found above under Workshops and Conferences.
  • European TMR (Training and Mobility in Research) on Phase Transitions on Crystalline Solids In 2001 the CNA became one of the US nodes of the European TMR (Training and Mobility in Research) on Phase Transitions on Crystalline Solids (http://www.dmsa.unipd.it/tmr) by the EEC. This alliance facilitated the mobility of postdocs and researchers between the US nodes and the European TMR partners (Italy, France, UK, Germany, and The Netherlands). From 2004-08 the CNA/CMU was part of the US team, led by the University of Minnesota, of the Marie Curie Research Training Network MULTIMAT, Multi-scale modelling and characterization for phase transformations in advanced materials, (http://webh01.ua.ac.be/multimat/). A new proposal has been submitted and is undergoing review.
  • PIMS (Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences, Vancouver, Canada) (http://www.pims.math.ca). An agreement between CNA and PIMS facilitates the mobility of postdoctoral fellows between the two institutions (and the Banff International Research Station), as well as co-organization of workshops and Summer schools.
  • The Max Planck Institute for Mathematics in the Sciences in Leipzig, Germanyhas an agreement with the CNA under which PhD students and postdocs may be (co-)mentored and offered internships at this institute.
  • The Mathematical Institute at the University of Oxfordand the CNA agreed to encourage mobility of graduate students and postdocs between these two centers of research.
  • Cultural CooperationThe CNA signed in 2002 an Agreement on Cultural Cooperation (graduate students and research faculty mobility and interchange) with the Universities of Firenze (Italy), Roma Tor Vergata (Italy), University Louis Pasteur in Strasbourg (France), Ruhr-Universitaet Bochum (Germany), University Claude Bernard in Lyon (France).
  • The University of Salerno(Italy)and the CNA signed an agreement in 2005 to facilitate the mobility of young researchers between the two institutions.
