IMU/ DCSG supported financially as well as by contribution of professional expertise the efforts of the French Centre International de Mathématique Pures et Appliquées (CIMPA) to rebuild the mathematical infrastructure in Cambodia, with prospects of cooperation from Vietnam and other countries in Southeast Asia, several of whom have considerable mathematical resources.
The initiative has resulted in the establishment of a Masters program, in 2007, in mathematics at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP), Cambodia; Volunteer lecturers from France (CIMPA), USA (NAS) and Japan (JICA) collaborate with the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP).
Each course is taught by a recognized international mathematician, with the assistance of a Cambodian counterpart from the Department of Mathematics at the Royal University of Phnom Penh (RUPP).
This close association between foreign experts and Cambodian staff benefits both parties, building RUPP's resources and experience in postgraduate teaching and allowing international professors to build a closer association with RUPP and Cambodia.
