On the 23rd of May in the morning, around 20 researchers gathered in ICTA-UAB’s Sala Antoni Rossell for an informal meeting to create synergies.

After a welcome given by the directors, researchers from both centers, previously selected with shared research interests, presented their work in two series of short talks. In the presentation sessions researchers gained a general awareness of what kind of projects were going on in the neighbouring center and during the coffee breaks they were able to engage in deeper discussions.

ICTA-UAB is a multidisciplinary center that promotes research in environmental sciences and aims to improve our understanding of global environmental change, and the nature and causes of environmental problems. CRM is a center specialized in mathematical research in all mathematical areas with a focus on its applications and social impact. Some of the topics covered were climate change forecast and adaptation, urban mobility and green infrastructures. Work from both centers is highly complementary and teher are many opportunities to help in each other’s research. Next step will be a second Joint Workshop in which possible collaborations will be explored further.

The CRM Colloquium, held on September 4th, 2023, featured a talk by Carlos Kenig on nonlinear wave equations, while the event’s networking opportunities underscored the importance of collaborative efforts in mathematical research. The meeting was an opportunity to showcase the strength of the mathematical community in Barcelona, and its firm commitment to advancing the frontiers of mathematics.
