Within the network, the research groups have been dealing with representations of algebras from very different point of views: from the perspective of group representations (Essen, Leeds), differential operator algebras (Edinburgh-Glasgow, Antwerp), quantum groups (Antwerp, Bielefeld, Paris), concentrating on representations of finite dimensional algebras (Bielefeld, Ioannina, Leeds, Trondheim, Torun) or on general rings (Antwerp, Edinburgh-Glasgow, Leeds, Murcia).
The network has been formed in order to use the specific expertise and competence of the participating teams; the combined knowledge and interactive cooperation will be necessary in order to push forward the representation theory of algebras. The network is organizing four Euroconferences devoted to the main aspects of the theory. They will serve to spread the existing knowledge and to provide an efficient training for young researchers. In addition, these conferences provide the possibility for a regular exchange of new ideas and for discussing recent developments.
