Main goal to encourage the study and research in Mathematics and its numerous applications,
as well as the evolvement of Mathematical Education in Greece.
Today, 100 years later, the HMS has more than 12.000 members and 39 regional branches across Greece.
Amongst the main objectives of the HMS are:
- the advancement of mathematics
- the fostering of free exchange of information between mathematicians, scientists and the society at large
- the substantial and continuous improvement of mathematical education and the advancement of general education
- to inform Greek mathematicians on recent progress made in science and technology and offer them practical assistance in matters which may occur during their work at school
