The Alma Mater Research Center on Applied Mathematics is a research center of the Department of Mathematics.

It aims to encourage, support and promote the applications of Mathematics to all fields of knowledge by performing interdisciplinary research in the frontiers of Mathematics, talented scientists’ training and attraction.

Nowadays, Applied Mathematics plays a fundamental role in our daily life (GPS, digital photos and music, google, CAT scan, financial models, epidemiological studies are only some examples), but it is also an essential tool for advanced studies in physics, engineering, economy, biology, archaeology, humane letters, music.

The Center will  facilitate the collaboration between research groups of different fields from Italy and other countries and will  publicise and diffuse the results. The Center is designed also to increase Post-Docs, PhD and Students awareness of the applications of applied mathematics by supporting research seminar series. As part of the Mathematics Department, the AM2 draws on the varied expertise of the mathematics faculty, and works with outside organizations to design and direct student projects. Industry partners of mathematics can provide input and support to the Center in the form of projects, student internships and research funding.

AM2 is continuing the tradition of CIRAM, Research Center of Applied Mathematics, founded in Bologna in 1989 and ceased in 2013.
