The Newton Gateway to Mathematics delivers activity across a broad range of sectors and engages in partnership with the users of mathematics - academics from other disciplines, those from industry and the public sector. 
Activities are bespoke and may originate from the need to address a specific technical issue or look for a better solution. Alternatively, they could be in response to the need to obtain ideas for next generation solutions from mathematicians involved in frontier research.

Activities take a number of forms:

  • Events - workshops and consultations
  • Training programmes
  • Short to medium-term research programmes
  • Projects

The Newton Gateway delivers Open for Business knowledge exchange events on behalf of the Isaac Newton Institute. These are specifically designed to bring together industrial, commercial and government organisations with mathematical scientists and can be run as part of an ongoing research programme, or as an independent event.

Industrial Statistics

Monday 25th March 2013

The statistical sciences are key to the efficient collection,
understanding and exploitation of data in all areas of industry,
including emerging and high-value sectors. In addition, challenges from
industry and science continue to provide stimulus for new research
directions for the discipline.

This event brought together researchers from
industry, applied and methodological statistics to explore new
challenges, disseminate best practice and to encourage and mentor early
career researchers.

Three themes were identified for the workshop
that were of current and direct interest to industry and that cut
across a variety of areas of research in Statistics.
