It seems that even in the age of Internet, most mathematical collaborations are born (and pursued) off-line.

However, I wonder if there exists a "matchmaking website" for mathematical collaboration on specific projects.

I'm thinking of MathOverflow meets Upwork, which may turn out to be very useful in a variety of circumstances (and indeed, if there is no such website, it could be something worth thinking about).

Since a specific website dedicated to the purpose described in the question seems to be missing, it would seem interesting to me to create and mantain two meta posts on Meta-Mathoverflow:

where each answer could be an offer of assistance (on a certain range of topics),

another where each answer could be a project in need a collaborator.

## @Andy Putman 2019-01-07 19:21:31

That would be an inappropriate use of meta.

## @Dal 2019-01-08 00:49:36

@AndyPutman Why?

## @Andy Putman 2019-01-08 03:51:52

Because meta is intended for questions about MO.
