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 for Research and Technology (GSRT) of the Hellenic Ministry of Education, Research and Religious Affairs.
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.
