General Information


MIMS activities began in early 2004. The two Departments of Mathematics in the former Victoria University of Manchester and UMIST had begun planning the joint formation of a research institute in 2001. The creation of the new University of Manchester in October 2004, with a School of Mathematics of approximately 75 permanent academic staff, provided the final impetus to bring the institute to fruition.


MIMS is located within the School of Mathematics in the purpose-designed Alan Turing Building, situated centrally on campus. MIMS has dedicated research space within the building, including a large seminar room, meeting rooms, office space for short and long-term visitors, a research library, and computing facilities, and it also houses the School Common Room. It therefore has the facilities to host meetings ranging from small workshops to medium-sized conferences.



MIMS is supported by internal University funds combined with funding from external sources. Activities include:
