Coronavirus Update for Newton Gateway Activities

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 discussions with our partners about the arrangements for upcoming events, some of which will be able to take place semi virtually or physically. A limited number of visitors are able to attend INI. The welfare of our visitors and staff is very important to us and 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.

Newton Gateway Events

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.


Upcoming Events

6th Edwards Symposium – Soft Matter for the 21st Century

Wednesday 7th September 2022 to Friday 9th September 2022
Centre for Mathematical Sciences

The Edwards Symposium Series continues 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.
