Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes, funded by the U.S. National Science Foundation, act as incubators to tackle problems ranging from health care and economics to data science and artificial intelligence.  By engaging multiple research communities, the institutes enable the field of mathematics to respond quickly to national needs.

NSF is investing more than $118 million over five years for six awards to Mathematical Sciences Research Institutes.  In addition to five renewal awards for existing institutes, one is brand new: the Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation at the University of Chicago.  The new institute, in collaboration with Northwestern University, the University of Illinois at Chicago, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, will convene both leaders in the field and junior trainees for long-term programming such as workshops and residencies that help to shape the direction and progress of mathematical research in the United States.

The National Science Foundation (NSF) has awarded $15.5 million to four universities in Illinois, including the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, to create an institute to bring powerful mathematical ideas to bear on key contemporary scientific and technological challenges. Researchers at the new Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation (IMSI) will build a platform that accelerates the translation of applied mathematical and statistical techniques into solutions for urgent scientific and societal problems. Many of these problems arise naturally in a range of fields already being studied across the four partner institutions, including climate change, health care, quantum information theory, artificial intelligence, data science, economics, and materials science.

Mathematicians and statisticians from the University of Illinois at Chicago will join a collaborative group of researchers representing three other leading research universities in Illinois as part of the new Institute for Mathematical and Statistical Innovation. Funded with a five-year, $15.5 million grant from the National Science Foundation, or NSF, the University of Chicago-based institute aims to bring powerful mathematical ideas to bear on key contemporary scientific and technological challenges, while enriching scientific research and workforce development in Chicago and the state of Illinois.
