GEAR - GEometric Structures And Representation Varieties

The GEAR Network is funded by a $5M grant from the U.S. National Science Foundation's Research Networks in Mathematical Sciences (RNMS) program. The acronym GEAR stands for GEometric structures And Representation varieties and reflects the mathematical focus of the network (described here). The GEAR Network brings together researchers from 69 nodes in the U.S., Canada, Colombia, Denmark, France, Germany, India, Israel, Italy, Portugal,  Singapore, Spain, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the UK. Its goal is to promote research interactions between network members, to facilitate cross-pollination of ideas between different research communities, and to train students and researchers to cross traditional mathematical boundaries.
