The ongoing spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) presents great challenges for organisations such as the Newton Gateway as activity takes place with those  from industry and academia  from across the globe and for whom collaboration is a regular and important part of their working lives. 
We are now working remotely. A number of the events that were to take place in the very near future have been postponed until later in the year. We continue discussions with our partners about the arrangements for these events and continue to plan for additional upcoming activities. 
Please do keep in touch and let us know if you have any questions - either direct to one of the Gateway team or via our main email address.
Also, please read the update from David Abrahams, Director of INI which was  posted on 7th May 2020. 

Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences

The Newton Gateway to Mathematics, Isaac Newton Institute (INI), International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) and Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN) are working with various representatives from the mathematical sciences community to develop a virtual forum for knowledge exchange in the mathematical sciences.
The main aim is to identify a range of virtual approaches that will help address challenges from business and industry, the third sector, and other groups outside academia. These challenges may be long-standing or may have arisen directly as a consequence of the present disruption to UK society.

5th Edwards Symposium - Future Directions in Soft Matter

Wednesday 8th September 2021 to Friday 10th September 2021
Centre for Mathematical Sciences

A key aim of the Edwards Symposium Series is to highlight the latest developments in soft matter science with a particular (but not exclusive) emphasis on theoretical and mathematical models, and on how these models can inform industrial processes, materials, and design. Leading academic speakers convey their latest scientific work, aiming to foster collaborative and interdisciplinary discussions across the industry/academia boundary.

The study groups provide an outstanding way for us to engage with the academic community. The key is that the study groups engage a wide range of individuals who actively work on a problem. As a result of this approach we can gain much deeper insights than we could by working alone, or even by holding a workshop. By the end of a study group we have usually made real progress in our understanding. That could mean identifying that a particular solution is a dead end. It could mean that we have an actual working solution. Or it could mean that we have scoped out useful future research, so we can focus our efforts in the areas will it make the most difference.
