Community Engagement

The Applied Probability Trust is committed to supporting the community and highlighting some of the brilliant initiatives taking place around the world. If you or someone you know runs a community engagement activity in the area of applied probability, please get in touch with us here and we will list you on this page. 



Eurandom acts as an international meeting point for researchers in the various areas of stochastics and takes initiatives for collaborative research at a national as well as a European level.

Behind The Research


An idea from the Centre for Doctoral Training in Statistical Applied Mathematics at Bath University (SAMBa) to create a legacy toolkit for PhD students in the mathematics department to take part in public engagement.

Podcast, The Random Sample


How do we make sense of a world filled with data, uncertainty, and randomness? With mathematics, statistics, and data science – that’s how! The Random Sample takes you inside these sciences and introduces you to some of the people involved, explores the work they’re doing, and shows the impact it’s having.

ILO’s Social Finance Programme


The ILO’s Social Finance Programme works with the financial sector to enable it to contribute to the ILO’s Decent Work Agenda. In this context, we engage with banks, microfinance institutions, credit unions, insurers, investors and others to test new financial products, approaches and processes. The Impact Insurance Facility contributes to the Social Finance agenda by collaborating with the insurance industry, governments and partners to realize the potential of insurance for social and economic development.
