The Kantorovich Initiative is dedicated towards research and dissemination of modern mathematics of optimal transport towards a wide audience of researchers, students, industry, policy makers and the general public.

The group was convened by Young-Heon Kim (University of British Columbia), Soumik Pal (University of Washington) and Brendan Pass (University of Alberta), with support from the Pacific Institute for the Mathematical Sciences.
