- 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
in Applied Analysis and in Probability, Stochastic Analysis and their
Applications. Ph.D. graduates of the program will earn two doctoral
one from Carnegie Mellon University and the other from the Portuguese
partners in association, currently the Universidade Tecnica de Lisboa
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
- 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
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
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
to facilitate the mobility of young researchers
between the two institutions.
