Essential 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 to work mostly 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.

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

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.

Machine Learning Training for Industry

Wednesday 3rd November 2021 to Wednesday 17th November 2021

The Newton Gateway aims to implement a number of short intensive training courses (2-3 days) in mathematical areas of relevance to individuals in industry, business and government. We envisage that these courses will provide technical training in the subject matter with the emphasis on practical applications of mathematics.
