Ethiopian Norwegian network in computational mathematics

ENNCoMat (main page content)

In this project, Hawassa University, Adama Science and Technology University, and Arba Minch University in Ethiopia will be joined by NTNU and Nord University in Norway in order to set up an Ethiopian-Norwegian network in computational mathematics. Our main goals are the enhancement of the quality of education and research in applied mathematics, the improved cooperation between the Norwegian and Ethiopian partners, and an increased interaction between academia and the Ethiopian industry and public sector.

The topic of this first “Summer school for female students” was “Scientific programming with Python”. There were 19 students from 9 universities all over Ethiopia that participated. The last Thursday, the group visited the “Awash Melkassa Aluminium Sulphate and Sulphuric Acid S.C”, where also the picture of the participants was taken. The excursion day was conclused by a dinner of all participants and the organisers.
