All our research teams are linked to a network of both national and international scientific cooperations. Below is a summary of the Faculty of Mathematics’ third party funded projects as well as of research cooperations both inside and outside of the University.
The German Research Foundation DFG will fund a Research Training Group run by the Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic started April 2020. The first funding period will run for four and a half years.

DFG-Research Training Groups
Within the framework of the Gaspard Monge Program for Optimization and Operations research (PGMO) of the Fondation Mathematiques Jacques Hadamard, Prof. Dr. Schultz is working on "Optimization under probabilistic constraints of complex systems - Application to the Anchoring offshore wind turbines". Partners are the Université Paris Diderot, Paris VII and Électricité de France (EDF).
Never have digital teaching methods been more important – for learners but also for teachers. Preparing them for the digital future ist the main goal of the project "Digitale Mathematiklehrerbildung in NRW (DigiMal.nrw)".
The Essen Seminar for Algebraic Geometry and Arithmetic consists of scientific research teams working in the area of algebraic geometry, algebraic K-theory, arithmetic geometry and number theory at the Essen Campus of the University of Duisburg-Essen.
