LMS Research Schools with support from the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (HIMR) and UKRI


The London Mathematical Society Research Schools provide training for research students in all contemporary areas of mathematics. Students and post-docs from both the UK and abroad can meet a number of leading international experts in the topic as well as other early career researchers working in related areas.
The LMS Research Schools take place in the UK and support participation of research students from both the UK and abroad. The lecturers are expected to be international leaders in their field.  The LMS Research Schools are often partially funded by the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research.

Clay Mathematics Institute Enhancement and Partnership Program

To extend the international reach of the Research School, prospective organisers may also wish to consider applying to the Clay Mathematics Institute (CMI) for additional funding under the CMI’s Enhancement and Partnership Program. Further information about this program can be found here. Prospective organisers are advised to discuss applications to this program as early as possible by contacting the CMI President, Martin Bridson (president@claymath.orgPlease note, as a condition of the Enhancement and Partnership Program, the event must already be viable without this funding; it is for enhancement only.


“Mathematically – The Research School gave an excellent foundation to advanced concepts as someone early in their PhD, detailed and engaging lectures condensed into a programme unseen anywhere else. The PS Workshop gave insight into current work and contextualised a lot of the discussions on o-minimality in the weeks prior/post. Socially – The conference was a triumph in my opinion before considering the content of the sessions themselves, as the coming together of multiple generations of model theorists from around the world was such a fantastic opportunity to network and form bonds with people whose work I may have otherwise been unaware of, and to share conversations with other researchers from our relatively niche field”. - Unimod 2022 (Leeds)
