The BGSMath’s Mission

Created in 2014, BGSMath is a collaborative initiative of the research groups in mathematics of four main universities and an international research centre located in the Barcelona area:


Its primary objective is to provide doctoral and postdoctoral training at the highest level in an international environment.

In 2015, BGSMath was awarded a  “Unit of Excellence Maria de Maeztu” distinction by the Spanish Government. These recognitions are meant to fund “highly competitive strategic research programmes in the frontiers of knowledge” that “are among the best in the world in their respective scientific areas”. The financial support over 4 years was for a total of 2,000,000€.

During that period, BGSMath was the only unit in mathematics in Spain holding this distinction.
