(START) WORKSHOP – 3rd Edition

Feb. 17 – 21, 2020 | AIMS Ghana

The Research Centre at the African Institute for Mathematical Sciences Ghana (AIMS Ghana) hosted the 3rd Edition of the Stochastic and Applications, Research and Training (START) workshop scheduled from February 17 to 21, 2020 at AIMS Ghana in Accra. The workshop focused on stochastic optimal control in both discrete and continuous time.

Developed to increase cooperation among researchers and research institutions, the workshop, organized with the support of the Alexander von Humboldt Foundation and the German Ministry of Education and Research, brought together renowned international and national scientific researchers, as well as young researchers and graduate students working on disciplines related to probability theory, financial and actuarial mathematics, insurance, mathematics, statistics, and economics. START included two mini courses, research talks and poster presentations.

Participants acquired the knowledge on the importance of research collaboration, the researcher’s role within the research innovation value chain, transforming ideas into outstanding research proposals, seeking funding for projects, presenting research results to academic and non-academic audiences and developing attractive cover letters and curriculum vitae.
