The Eastern Africa Universities Mathematics Programme (EAUMP) abbreviated as EAUMP started in 2002. It is the network aiming at alleviating the dismal state of Mathematics in Eastern Africa. It aims at enhancing capacity building as well as initiating and strengthening collaborative research activities within the region. It is envisaged that EAUMP will promote professional relationships among members.
The vision of the network is that EAUMP becomes a laboratory of ideas and to assist member institutions by formulating strategies and provide directions regarding research collaboration and capacity building in the sub-region.
The EAUMP has placed the participating institutions in the region; namely University of Dar Es Salaam, Nairobi University, Makerere University, National University of Rwanda, Kigali Institute of Technology and University of Zambia in a very excellent position in Africa and the entire world as a whole in terms of staff, facilities, research and collaboration.
