Greenwich Maths Centre

The Greenwich Maths Centre is a centre at the University of Greenwich, within the Faculty of Liberal Arts and Sciences.  It was launched with a special lecture by Professor Dame Celia Hoyles on "Potential, policy and challenges for mathematics" on 10 March 2015. The purpose of the centre is to promote mathematics at all levels: to demonstrate the value of mathematics as a tool for business and industry, as an instrument for understanding our world, and as a fascinating pursuit in its own right.
