EWM Membership

The European Women in Mathematics association (EWM) was founded in 1986, having several hundred members and coordinators in 33 European countries.

Every other year, EWM holds a general meeting and a summer school. A newsletter is published twice a year, EWM has an e-mail network EWM-ALL, a facebook group and a website:



EWM aims at:

-Encouraging women to study mathematics

-Supporting women in their careers

-Providing a meeting place for like-minded people

-Promoting scientific communication

-Cooperating with groups and organizations with similar goals

-Giving prominence and visibility to women mathematicians

-Spreading their vision of mathematics and science


Moreover, EWM

- awards a few grants each year for female mathematicians that are EWM members and are at an early stage of their career or work in a developing country, who need funding (travel and/or accommodation, up to 400 EUR each) for participating and giving a talk at a significant conference in their field.

- offers mentoring for members in need of guidance regarding their mathematical career, and balancing career and family.

-encourages meetings of EWM national branches in

their countries by partial financial support: two grants per year of up to 1000 EUR each (especially for Eastern European countries or European countries with difficult financial situations in universities).
