The Oxford Centre for Collaborative Applied Mathematics (OCCAM) is a research centre in Oxford University’s Mathematical Institute. OCCAM was launched in October 2008 and is funded by King Abdullah University of Science and Technology (KAUST).
The major intellectual challenges facing mankind demand innovative problem-solving to improve technologies and make best use of available resources. OCCAM meets that need by providing high-level mathematical skills in modelling, analysis and computation. OCCAM works in a wide array of scientific fields with its core projects spanning four areas:
- Resources, Energy & Environment
- Biosciences & Bioengineering
- Materials Science & Engineering
OCCAM’s research style is collaborative and global – many scientists from across the globe join us here in Oxford as visitors and for our events and we in turn work on projects and attend workshops and conferences around the world.
OCCAM exists alongside four other well-established groups of applied and computational mathematicians working in Oxford:
