Research Exposure Week 2021
August 29 – September 3, 2021
The event will take place at the Technion in accordance with the Israeli health guidelines
The Faculty of Mathematics at the Technion will hold its yearly student event, Exposure to Mathematical Research.
We are inviting all curious undergraduate students (finishing their 2nd and 3rd year of mathematical studies) to register.
Participants will have an opportunity to learn about some of the current challenges in mathematical research and to experience first-hand the type of work done by modern-day mathematicians.
The main program will consist of projects in small groups of 2-4 students, guided by faculty members and postdoctoral associates from the Faculty of Mathematics and exploring a topic of current interest.
The program will also include social gatherings, and other activities.
Housing, meals, and a stipend will be provided.
We look forward to meeting you and sharing our excitement for mathematical research and exploration!
