Newton Gateway to Mathematics

The Newton Gateway to Mathematics acts as a knowledge intermediary for the mathematical sciences. It is the impact initiative of the Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI). Supported by INI and the University of Cambridge, the Newton Gateway to Mathematics reaches out to and engages with the users of mathematics – in industry, business, public sector and other scientific disciplines. It helps to bridge the gap between those engaged in frontier mathematical research and those working in more applied areas, by stimulating the interchange of knowledge and ideas.

The Newton Gateway works as a delivery partner to facilitate the exchange, translation and dissemination of knowledge. Using effective communications and proven methodologies, it develops and runs activities such as workshops and meetings, bringing people and organisations together in order to share knowledge and stimulate further research and collaboration. With extensive access to multiple communities across the UK and globally, it can respond in an agile and flexible manner.

From a scientific perspective, INI facilitates cutting-edge research in the mathematical sciences, where significant mathematical challenges are to be found, whereas the Newton Gateway to Mathematics facilitates the exchange, translation and dissemination of knowledge from the mathematical sciences to potential users.

The Gateway develops and delivers INI's Open for Business events - these are specifically designed to bring together industrial, commercial and government organisations with mathematical scientists. They can be run as part of an ongoing research programme, or as an independent event.

Mission Statement:

The Newton Gateway to Mathematics acts as a vehicle for knowledge exchange between the mathematical sciences and potential users of mathematics, including industry, government, business and other academic disciplines, both in the UK and internationally. It does this by facilitating interactions and activities such as programmes of work, research and training events, as well as bespoke projects. The Newton Gateway to Mathematics aims to widen access to mathematics generally, to shorten pathways to impacts for academic research, and to support education and training in areas where mathematical skills are needed.

Background

The Newton Gateway to Mathematics was established in March 2013, as the Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM), as the impact initiative of INI. It was named after Alan Turing because of his exceptionally wide influence across a broad range of areas.

The increasing scale of activity was such that the Newton Gateway to Mathematics needed to reinforce its identify as both an integral part of INI and as a national facility for knowledge exchange for mathematical sciences in the UK. The Review into Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences reinforced the need to have impact as a central role within the mathematical sciences. There was the additional need to avoid confusion with other organisations and so it was timely to rebrand to the Newton Gateway to Mathematics in January 2019.
 

Gateway activity is located in the INI’s Faulkes Gatehouse. Anyone can approach the Gateway for advice and support and if you would like to get involved, please email the Gateway or visit the website.
