The EMS was founded in 1990 in Madralin near Warsaw (Poland). Discussions to constitute such a society started in Helsinki in 1978 on the occasion of the International Mathematical Congress. The discussions were conducted within the European Mathematical Council, an initiative of Sir Michael Atiyah. Today, its membership consists of all mathematical societies in Europe and about 2000 individual members who joined through their national societies. The purpose of the Society is to further the development of all aspects of mathematics in the countries of Europe. The Society aims to promote research in mathematics and its applications. It will assist and advise on problems of mathematical education. It concerns itself with the broader relation of mathematics to society. In short, it seeks to establish a sense of identity amongst European mathematicians.
