  1. IAMCS: Institute for Applied Mathematics and Computational Sciencehttp://iamcs.tamu.edu 6 October 2008 Texas A&M University

  2. Who Funds Us • KAUST: King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (http://www.kaust.edu.sa) • This is a new graduate-level research university with a multi-billion dollar endowment, starting September 5 2009, that aims to be “merit-based and open to men and women from around the world” KAUST King Abdullah University of Science and Technology

  3. Funding Competition • KAUST invited 50+ university to compete for 4 research centers • They call this the GRP: Global Research Partnership • The aim is to give KAUST research collaborators in important fields KAUST King Abdullah University of Science and Technology 3

  4. Funding Competition • Texas A&M was selected as one of 4 research centers (note our peers) • Cornell University (Materials Science) • Stanford University (Molecular Photovoltaics) • Oxford University (Applied Mathematics) • Texas A&M University (Applied Mathematics, Statistics and Computational Science) KAUST King Abdullah University of Science and Technology 4

  5. Funding Competition • The award is for roughly $23,000,000 over 5 years • Our mission: To produce fundamental research and develop strong interdisciplinary research teams in areas of interest to Texas A&M and Saudi Arabia involving applied mathematics, statistics and computer science KAUST King Abdullah University of Science and Technology 5
