Bhaskaracharya Pratishthan is a Pune based Mathematics Institute founded in 1976 by the world famous Indian Mathematician Prof. Shreeram Abhyankar for conducting research in Higher Mathematics. Over the years a number students studied under the guidance of Prof. Abhyankar and obtained their Ph.D. degree in India or abroad. Since 1992 the Pratishthan has also been a recognised centre for conducting Regional Mathematics Olympiad (RMO) under the National Board for Higher Mathematics (NBHM) for Maharashtra and Goa Region. This has enabled the Pratishthan to train lots of students from std. V to XII for this prestigious examination. Many students who received training at BP have won medals in the International Mathematical Olympiad.The Pratishthan has experienced that out of these students who were initially attracted to Mathematics because of job opportunities in the fields of Engineering, Computer Science and Information Technology, many got inspiration to undertake research in Higher Mathematics.
The Pratishthan published Bona Mathematica, a pedagogical journal in Mathematics for college/university students and teachers during 1995-2003. Besides this the Pratishthan holds annual / biennial conferences/Workshops in some research areas in higher mathematics attended by Indian/Foreign scholars and Professors. The Pratishthan has organised a number of Workshops for research students and college teachers under the aegis of NBHM/NCM. The National Board for Higher mathematics has greatly helped Pratishthan to enrich its library and the Department of Atomic Energy and the Mathematics Department of S. P. Pune University have rendered active co-operation in holding Conferences/Workshops. The teachers from various colleges in Pune as well as researchers from institutions all over India have supported the activities at BP over a long period of time.
