It is with great sadness that we learned of the death of Bas Edixhoven, Professor of Geometry at the University of Leiden (The Netherlands) and member of CIMPA, died on January 16 of a devastating tumor.
All of us will remember him as a great mathematician, a generous colleague of his time and knowledge and a caring mentor. He had recently worked to bring the Dutch community closer to CIMPA.
Our condolences go out to his family and many friends. We will always remember Bas.
The CIMPA-ICTP fellowships program "Research in Pairs" makes it possible for researchers in mathematics based in a developing country to come to Europe to collaborate with a colleague for a period of at least 6 weeks. During this period, it is expected that these two people will work together on a well-substantiated research project, mainly in the institute of the European colleague.
The maximum amount of support is 10,000 euros.
