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. It was initially convened as a the PIHOT Collaborative Research Group, but has since grown to become the first awarded PIMS Research Network.
