# ANU joins MATRIX partnership

The Mathematical Research Institute MATRIX is delighted to announce that The Australian National University has joined Monash University and The University of Melbourne in a three-way partnership.

Since 2016, MATRIX has stimulated international collaborations through 66 weeks of residential research programs across the spectrum of the mathematical sciences, attracting over 1100 scientists from 40 countries.

MATRIX also hosts an international online seminar series featuring several high profile speakers, and facilitates mathematical outreach programs for school teachers organised by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Mathematical and Statistical Frontiers which is an associate member of MATRIX.

The addition of the Australian National University to the MATRIX partnership is a big step forward for Australia's residential research institute for the mathematical sciences. Professor Peter Bouwknegt from the Australian National University will join Professors David Wood (Monash University) and Jan de Gier (University of Melbourne) in the MATRIX Executive.
