The spread of COVID-19 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. 

In order to maintain the highest standards, INI policies follow the UK Government’s guidance and that of the University of Cambridge’s Safety Office at all times.The welfare of our visitors and staff is very important to us and further details about COVID-19 safety measures can be seen on the INI website.

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.

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 Innovate UK 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.

Cambridge Mathematics of Information in Healthcare Hub - Academic Engagement Event

Wednesday 21st June 2023
Centre for Mathematical Sciences

The EPSRC Cambridge Mathematics of Information in Healthcare (CMIH) Hub was launched in 2020. It focuses on some of the most challenging public health problems of our time, including Cancer, Cardiovascular Disease and Dementia. There is a core mathematical component that is common to data challenges across these clinical disciplines, which the Hub will evaluate and address through its interdisciplinary collaborations. The overarching objective is to develop data analytics algorithms and provide the associated theory that is directly linked to the requirements in the clinic for healthcare decision making.

Phase Transitions and Correlated Random Processes

Wednesday 10th May 2023
Isaac Newton Institute

Launched in 2016, CCIMI accommodates research activity on fundamental mathematical problems and methodology for understanding, analysing, processing and simulating data. Data science research performed in the Institute is of the highest international level, aiming to extract the relevant information from large and high-dimensional data with a predictable certainty. This in-person event followed previous successful academic and industrial engagement events, which focused on different aspects related to the mathematics of information.
