Delayed activities  due to the Corona pandemic 

Due to the Corona pandemic, conferences planed for 2020 and 2021 were shifted to 2021 and 2022. A conference on Geometrical Methods in Computational Neuroscience (June 2021) , an ERCOM meeting hosted by ENI, March 2022, a conference on Complex Dynamics (joint with Ort Braude), May 2022, a Focus group on brain-machine interface , June 2021.  Announcements will be released soon.

Postdoctoral fellows that could not use their ENI  fellowship in 2020, can use it in 2021. 


History of the Center

The Emmy Noether Institute was founded in 1992.  It was established by the Minerva Foundation of Germany, who decided to establish in Israel a Minerva Center in mathematics named after Emmy Noether, one of the greatest scientists of the twentieth century. The Center was thus called the Emmy Noether Mathematical Institute in Algebra, Geometry and Function Theory. The Institute’s goals upon its establishment were to run a visitor program, support international collaborations, organize conferences, and as indicated by the Minerva Foundation, to encourage collaborations between Israel and Germany, host postdoctoral fellows, and to moderately fund local research. Nowadays, it is commonly referred to as the Emmy Noether Research Institute for Mathematics, or, in its abbreviated form, the ENI. The Institute that started as a mainly German-Israeli institute, has developed to foster full scale international collaborations and activities.

General Framework

The Institute is physically located at Bar-IIan University, but it is managed independently, and led by a Director and an Advisory Board, who were appointed jointly by the Minerva Foundation and the University.  There are no permanent faculty. The University provides housing, library facilities, computer and networks infrastructure, and grants management. Often, the visitors develop research projects with local researchers.
