The spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has presented 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 continue to work remotely. Events that were to take place physically have been rescheduled and are now taking place virtually. Some were moved to 2021 and we hope that some will be able to take place semi virtually or physically. 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.

Upcoming Events

The Future of Mathematical Challenges in the Electromagnetic Environment

Tuesday 27th July 2021 to Wednesday 28th July 2021

This event aims to report back on what progress has been made and specifically on research endeavours and projects which have emanated from the previous research scoping workshops and study groups. It will also present a number of new research challenges.

Understanding the Generation Time for COVID-19

Wednesday 28th July 2021 to Friday 30th July 2021

The aim of this event will be to hear talks related to each of the factors affecting the generation time, to try to understand current work and thinking in each area and in turn to try to identify how these may be more joined up. A key goal of this event is to build links between epidemic modellers and the wider modelling community with interests in COVID-19, such as within-host modelling teams – including, but not limited to members of RAMP-initiated projects.

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.

Past Events

New Models of Spatial and Social Behaviour in a Pandemic

Wednesday 26th May 2021 to Thursday 27th May 2021

Building on the work begun by RAMP, this two-day science meeting reviewed existing work and identify where further research is most urgently needed. The meeting included updates on model and simulator development and demonstrator projects. There were updates on the status of getting to national capability and integration with policy makers.

IMA Mathematics 2021 Online Series - Week Two

Tuesday 25th May 2021

For a number of years, the IMA has been running a series of conferences to promote mathematics with the aim of demonstrating to both mathematicians and non-mathematicians the many uses of modern mathematics.

I certainly found the event interesting, entertaining and quite challenging. I also made some useful contacts in the academic community and I'm hoping that will lead to further collaboration.
