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

Reasoning via Formal Models in Economics - Normative vs. Positive Models

Wednesday 13th May 2015

Normative and positive models are usually taken to reflect the "should"
and "could" aspects of choice, respectively. But sometimes the distinction
isn't so clear.

Scoping Meeting on Incorporating Uncertainty Quantification into Biophysical Multi-scale Models of the Heart

Thursday 7th May 2015

Programmes with a focus on models of the heart have been held at the
Isaac Newton Institute in 2001 and again in 2009. We are proposing to
hold a new programme, centred on the need to bring uncertainty
quantification techniques into models of cardiac physiology to enable
parameter estimation, quantify sensitivity and provide guidance on model
confidence. We feel this is critical for cardiac models to play a role
in clinical applications, informing pharmacological studies and
interpreting larger and noisier experimental data sets.

Reasoning via Formal Models in Economics - Models as Tools

Wednesday 6th May 2015

Often, the same conceptual question comes up repeatedly in many
different settings, sometimes in different guises. It can then prove
useful to develop a modelling concept - a tool - for addressing the

Reasoning via Formal Models in Economics - Models as Parables

Wednesday 29th April 2015

Sometimes models are so stylised that they can't possibly be used
as the basis of empirical work (at least not directly). Nevertheless,
they may be useful as a way of thinking coherently - of checking loose
intuitions - about complex phenomena.

Maths and Public Policy for Health and Society

Tuesday 24th March 2015

Public policy is hugely important as it forms the framework by which
government and non-governmental organisations work to resolve social,
economic and political issues in society. This in turn determines the
allocation and distribution of the resources needed to achieve these
goals. Mathematics is essential to this process, as it allows us to
model how the world works and increases understanding as to how social,
economic, natural and industrial systems operate.
