The Institute of Applied & Computational Mathematics (IACM) is located in Heraklion, Crete, Greece and was founded in 1985. Initially, it was part of the Research Center of Crete; in 1987 it became one of the founding institutes of FORTH, a major Greek research center. FORTH is overseen by the General Secretariat of Research & Technology (GSRT) of the Ministry of Education, Greece.
The objectives of the research personnel of IACM are:
- To conduct research of high quality in selected areas of Applied and Computational Mathematics.
- To participate in interdisciplinary research projects, mainly by developing and applying mathematical methods and tools for modelling and solving complex problems in the sciences and technology.
- To develop tools and methodologies based on applied mathematics that can be used in the public and private sectors.
- To provide training for graduate students and postdoctoral researchers in Applied and Computational Mathematics and related areas.
