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.


Past Events

Understanding Microbial Communities - Developing the Potential - Open for Business Event

Thursday 4th December 2014

The importance of microbial communities for health, industry and the
natural environment cannot be overstated. Despite this, there is an
enormous gap between the levels of our empirical knowledge of microbial
communities' composition and experimental and theoretical understanding
of their function, structure, and dynamics. This is why the development
and advancement of combined mathematical and experimental approaches for
the study of microbial communities has a huge potential for this field.

Techniques for Data Linkage and Anonymisation

Thursday 23rd October 2014

The two areas - data linkage and anonymisation - are fundamentally
interdisciplinary. With this in mind, this workshop brought together
leading experts from a variety of relevant disciplines, including
mathematics, computer science and statistics, as well as those from
other related disciplines. Likewise, a key objective was to gain input
from key stakeholders, with expertise in specific application domains,
such as educationalists, official statisticians, medical researchers,
commercial organisations, epidemiologists and others.

Systemic Risk and Macro-Prudential Regulation: Perspectives from Network Analysis Open for Business Event

Monday 13th October 2014

This Open for Business event was part of an Isaac Newton Institute
research programme on Systemic Risk and was co-organised with the Bank
of England and the Turing Gateway to Mathematics. This one day workshop
highlighted recent research contributions and regulatory initiatives,
with an emphasis on the role played by network models in understanding
systemic risk.

Post-Quantum Research - Addressing Future Challenges and Directions

Thursday 18th September 2014 to Friday 19th September 2014

This second workshop took forward ideas generated in the first event which took place in May 2014.
It continued with the key aim to gain consensus in identifying
the mathematical challenges in post-quantum cryptography and sought to
progress with setting the agenda for future research directions.
These activities are set against a background that there is a
realistic possibility in the medium term that the power of quantum
computation will have the potential to compromise some cyber security
systems. This event was part of the Post-Quantum Research initiative which aims to address challenges and directions for post-quantum cyber-security research now and in the future.

NC3Rs/POEMS Network Maths Study Group: Mathematical Approaches to 3Rs Problems in Medicine and Healthcare

Monday 8th September 2014 to Friday 12th September 2014

Mathematical modelling has the potential to solve biological
questions, provide new insights which benefit science, medicine and
healthcare and reduce reliance on animal models. The aim of the Study
Group was to tackle research problems which, if addressed, could help to
replace, reduce or refine the use of animals in research (the 3Rs). The
Maths Study Group provided a unique opportunity for mathematicians and
biologists to work together. It encouraged collaborative work towards
applying mathematics to gain new insights and partnerships which could
transform science.

This event continued the Maths in Medicine Study Group (MMSG) series and built on the 2013 NC3Rs Maths Study Group.
The structure of the week involved problems being presented to
participants on the first day, with the rest of the Study Group week
spent brainstorming ideas and beginning to develop novel mathematical,
statistical, or computational models for each of the problems.
