History and Background

The African Mathematical Union (AMU) was founded in July 1976 with the mission to coordinate and promote the high quality teaching, learning, research and outreach activities in all areas of mathematical sciences all over Africa with the following objectives:

But it was only later from 1986 that various commissions had been established to serve under AMU.
One of these commissions is the Commission for Research and Innovations in Mathematical Sciences (AMU-CRIMS) created by the AMU Executive Committee elected in 2009 for integrating Afrika Matematika.

The recent General assembly took place on 2nd July 2017 at the Sciences Faculty of Rabat and elected a new AMU Executive Committee with Prof. Nouzha El Yacoubi as the AMU President. Under the new Executive Committee leadership, new commissioners were nominated and appointed to serve in the various AMU commissions. For the AMU-CRIMS :

AMU-CRIMS: 2017-2021

Objectives of AMU-CRIMS :

How to achieve these objectives

- Get the state of the art of research and innovation in Africa (e.g. discuss the SWOT (strenght, weakness, opportunities and treats) of research and innovations in Africa through a panafrican meeting).
- Identify priority area of research and innovation at regional and continental levels
