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

Mathematics of Liquid Crystals: Industrially Inspired Problems

Wednesday 27th March 2013

Liquid crystals, through their use in technology, have had a profound
impact on many facets of life today. Despite their widespread use, they
are still incompletely understood. The workshop Mathematics of Liquid Crystals: Industrially Inspired Problems
brings mathematicians in academia working in the field of liquid
crystals together with representatives of industry producing liquid
crystal materials and devices.

The goal of the workshop was to provide an
opportunity for industrial representatives to interest mathematicians in
challenging problems which had arisen in device development and
manufacturing, and for mathematicians to apply their skills to the
solutions of these problems.

Policy Support in Communities and Local Government

Tuesday 26th March 2013

The Department for Communities and Local Government (DCLG) wanted to
engage with academic mathematicians and statisticians to address major
policy challenges and to inform its decision-making. The Turing Gateway
to Mathematics invited interested academics, and especially early career
researchers, to take part in this one-day workshop at the Isaac Newton
Institute in Cambridge on 26 March 2013.

Generally, DCLG works to move decision-making
power from central government to local councils. This helps put
communities in charge of planning, increases accountability and helps
citizens to see how their money is being spent.

Some of DCLG’s responsibilities include:

Industrial Statistics

Monday 25th March 2013

The statistical sciences are key to the efficient collection,
understanding and exploitation of data in all areas of industry,
including emerging and high-value sectors. In addition, challenges from
industry and science continue to provide stimulus for new research
directions for the discipline.

This event brought together researchers from
industry, applied and methodological statistics to explore new
challenges, disseminate best practice and to encourage and mentor early
career researchers.

Three themes were identified for the workshop
that were of current and direct interest to industry and that cut
across a variety of areas of research in Statistics.
