The world is constantly changing, and the use of technologies is rapidly growing. However, lots of challenges still remain unsolved. This is where fundamental mathematics enters the scene. Mathematics is presented almost everywhere, and the efficiency of the industry highly depends on the mathematical background of the engineers and researchers working towards scientific and technological progress. The more technologically advanced are devices we use in our everyday life, the richer is the mathematics driving them.

Therefore, the Baltic Institute of Mathematics in cooperation with the Taras Shevchenko National University of Kyiv and the Institute of Mathematics of NAS of Ukraine are starting up a research seminar for students from the last two years of high school and first two years of the university, where we will discuss the current technologies and fundamental mathematics behind them. Every participant will be given an opportunity not only to get knowledge but also to give a try on doing research. Each meeting will be followed by a small research project.
