Newton Gateway activities are bespoke and can originate from the need to address a specific technical issue or look for a better solution. Alternatively, they can be in response to the need to obtain ideas for next generation solutions from mathematicians involved in frontier research.

Gateway activities can take a number of forms:

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


Newton Gateway Initiatives

Mathematical Challenges in the Electromagnetic Environment

The EME is essential to the UK across all domains; space, air, land, sea and cyber. To solve problems encountered when operating in the EME there are currently a range of approaches and traditional engineering techniques. However, applying new or alternative mathematics presents an opportunity to create new, innovative approaches.

The Defence, Science and Technology Laboratory (Dstl), PA Consulting and the Isaac Newton Institute are collaborating to engage the mathematical community to work on challenges in the EME.

Maths and Public Policy

In 2014 to 2015, the Newton Gateway delivered a programme of work and associated events on behalf of the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC). This brought together mathematical sciences researchers and policy makers to explore modelling and problem solving, with the aim to raise the profile of the mathematical sciences and its importance to the public policy area.

Post-Quantum Research

Post-Quantum Research is an initiative of the Newton Gateway to Mathematics, with support from GCHQ.There is a realistic possibility that in the medium term the power of quantum computation will have the potential to compromise some cyber security systems.
