Open for Business Events

Open for Business events form part of the Institute's mission to foster links between academic research and the business world and are organised by the Turing Gateway to Mathematics. The aim is to bring together academic researchers in the mathematical sciences with industrial, commercial and government organisations and individuals to enable formal and informal discussion and networking.

Open for Business events are organised in conjunction with the Knowledge Transfer Network for Industrial Mathematics (KTN) and whenever appropriate with the Centre for Science and Policy. They are supported by the Higher Education Innovation Fund of the University of Cambridge.

Open for Business events provide opportunities, at senior level, for cross-fertilisation between the business-facing activities of the KTN and the research focus of the Institute. Events are structured to enable the formation of new relationships on the business-academic interface and to assist in identifying the common challenges that have greatest potential for research, knowledge transfer, public policy and commercial impact.

Upcoming Events

Theoretical Foundations for Statistical Network Analysis - Open for Business event

1st November 2016

Networks are ubiquitous in modern science and society - many complex systems can be described in terms of networks capturing the intricate web of connections among the units they are made up of. Whenever we observe entities and relationships between them, we have network data. The behaviour of almost all networks, natural or engineered, physical or information-based, involves a strong component of randomness and is typically not fully or directly observed.
