The New Zealand Mathematics Research Institute (NZMRI) Inc.

The NZMRI is an organisation established in the 1990s with the aim of promoting mathematical research in New Zealand.

The main focus of the NZMRI’s activity has been the organisation of summer meetings on particular topics of contemporary significance in mathematics, to which some of the world’s best mathematicians are invited for the purpose of giving short courses of lectures and interacting with local researchers and graduate students.

This activity has been generously supported by the Marsden Fund (through 3-year grants 1995-98, 1998-2001 and 2001-04), the NZIMA (through its thematic programmes (2003-2008) and directly (2008-2011)), and contributions by individuals (from NZ and overseas) and by mathematics and statistics departments at NZ universities.

Workshops organised and sponsored through the NZMRI (formerly known as the NZ Institute of Mathematics) to date have been as follows:

The NZRMI is an incorporated society and has been granted charitable status by the NZ Inland Revenue Department. Donations are welcome, and will be put towards enhancing the mathematical research environment in New Zealand.
