Words from President

Dear Friends and Colleagues,

China’s economy has seen transformative changes in past decades. The next phase of development will depend on innovations in science and technology. The new economy will need support from more original and innovative works in basic research, and from more technological breakthroughs in engineering, in order to make more fundamental contributions to the world.

Shanghai, under the leadership of Secretary Chen Jining, has invested enormously in science and technology. In 2023, with generous support from the Science and Technology Commission of Shanghai Municipality, the Yangpu District government, Fudan University and other entities, the idea of building a world-class center for mathematics was transformed into the establishment of the Shanghai Institute for Mathematics and Interdisciplinary Sciences within 6 months. SIMIS cordially invites talents and leaders in mathematical sciences to join us to develop fundamental research and interdisciplinary applications. Let us work together to transcend the tradition of mathematics, to open up new directions, to explore new frontiers, to promote original ideas, to cultivate young talents, in order to build a world leading nation in mathematical research.

Shing-Tung Yau
Chairman, the SIMIS Board of Governors
