The European Mathematical Society (EMS) is a European organization dedicated to the development of mathematics in Europe. Its members are different mathematical societies in Europe, academic institutions and individual mathematicians. The current president is Marta Sanz Solé,^{[1]} professor of Statistics at University of Barcelona.
Goals
The Society seeks to serve all kinds of mathematicians in universities, research institutes and other forms of higher education. Its aims are to
 promote mathematical research, both pure and applied,
 assist and advise on problems of mathematical education,
 concern itself with the broader relations of mathematics to society,
 foster interaction between mathematicians of different countries,
 establish a sense of identity amongst European mathematicians,
 represent the mathematical community in supranational institutions.
The European Mathematical Society is also member of the Initiative for Science in Europe.
History
The European Mathematical Society was founded in 1990 in Madralin near Warsaw, Poland.
The European Mathematical Society, through its committee for Raising Public Awareness of Mathematics (RPA), has recently run a competition for articles that have appeared in a newspaper, or some similar general magazine, in the home country of the author.
Prizes
Every four years a congress is organized called the European Congress of Mathematics (ECM). Ten prizes are then awarded to "recognize excellent contributions in Mathematics by young researchers not older than 35 years".^{[2]}
