Essential Coronavirus Update for Newton Gateway Activities

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. 

Following the announcement from the Vice Chancellor about the University's response to the spread of novel coronavirus (COVID-19), the Isaac Newton Institute  temporarily closed its doors on Friday 20 March. We are all greatly saddened by this necessary decision, however we are all 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


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

5th Edwards Symposium - Future Directions in Soft Matter

Wednesday 9th September 2020 to Friday 11th September 2020
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.
