to The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications
The Institute of Mathematics and its Applications (IMA) is the UK's learned and professional society for mathematics and its applications. It promotes mathematics research, education and careers, and the use of mathematics in business, industry and commerce. Amongst its activities the IMA produces academic journals, organises conferences, and engages with government.
Founded in 1964, the Institute has 5,000 members. Forty percent of members are employed in education (schools through to universities), and the other 60% work in commercial, industrial and governmental organisations.
In 1990 the Institute was incorporated by Royal Charter and was subsequently granted the right to award Chartered Mathematician designation. The Institute also awards the Chartered Scientist designation and the Chartered Mathematics Teacher designation (from mid-2009).
