Paulo Guilherme Santos – NOVA Math researcher and PhD student in Mathematics at NOVA SST was selected as member of the European Mathematical Society Young Academy (EMYA) ( The EMYA, created by the European Mathematical Society (EMS), aims to strengthen the role of the young generation of mathematicians within the EMS.

Beyond this researcher, several other NOVA Math members collaborate with EMS, due to the international recognition of the work they have developed within the scientifical community, but also within the general public. Namely, João Araújo integrates the Education Committee, Fabio Chalub is a member of the Committee for Applications and Interdisciplinary Relations, and Rogério Martins and Fátima Rodrigues are part of the Committee for Raising Public Awareness.

EMS promotes the development of all aspects of mathematics in Europe, particularly mathematical research, relations of mathematics to society, relations to European institutions and mathematical education. The EMS integrates 60 national mathematical societies in Europe, 50 mathematics research centers and departments, and 3.000 individuals. Globally, only 11 Portuguese researchers integrate EMS committees.
