Open for Business Events

Open for Business (OfB) events form part of the Institute's mission to foster greater links between academic research and the business world and are organised by the Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM). The TGM is the impact initiative of the INI and acts as a vehicle for knowledge exchange between the mathematical sciences and potential users of mathematics, such as industry and other academic disciplines in the UK as well as internationally.  

Open for Business events aim 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. They are organised in conjunction with Research Programme academic organisers and take place within a relevant INI Programme Workshop or as a separate standalone event.

Open for Business events provide opportunities, at senior level, for cross-fertilisation between the business-facing activities 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

Form & Deformation in Art, Toys and Games

1st December 2017

This event is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Research Programme Growth Form and Self-organisation.  Mathematicians and scientists who work on the physical aspects of art, on the art-making processes, and on the physics of toys, often work individually or in small groups disconnected from one another. This workshop aims foster exchange between different groups of researchers and practitioners and to establish links between researchers pursuing different diversions and perhaps begin forming a community.

Mathematics of Imaging and Vision

6th December 2017

Imaging and vision is highly multidisciplinary – spanning mathematics, engineering, machine learning, computer vision and machine vision. There are numerous applications for this science in sectors such as medical imaging, security, geoscience, environment, food, manufacturing, agriculture, films, art and archaeology. This one day workshop forms part of the Isaac Newton Institute Research Programme Variational Methods and Effective Algorithms for Imaging and Vision.

Taming Uncertainty in Mathematical Models Used in the Private and Public Sectors

1st February 2018

Understanding how uncertainty affects real decision-making is an essential part of developing uncertainty quantification (UQ) as a useful intellectual discipline. This event is part of the six month Programme at the INI on Uncertainty Quantification for Complex Systems: Theory and Methodologies and will concentrate on how to handle uncertainty arising from the use of mathematical models.

Big Data and the Role of Statistical Scalability

28th February 2018

The ability to collect and store data has increased exponentially in recent years. So too have the challenges around managing the huge volumes generated and trying to extract meaningful information from it. This workshop is part of the six month programme at the Isaac Newton Institute (INI) on Statistical Scalability and is in collaboration with the EPSRC funded StatScale Network.

Recent Events

Probability and Statistics in Forensic Science - Dissemination Workshop

1st December 2016

The legal community faces a number of challenges around the use of probability and statistics in forensic science. For instance, while there have been dramatic advances in the range and scale of forensic techniques used to help solve legal cases, the way that the probative value of forensic evidence is presented in courts is rudimentary and often flawed. In particular, where probative value is presented in probabilistic and statistical terms there have been numerous instances of misunderstanding leading to miscarriages of justice.

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.

Perspectives on Data Linkage - Techniques, Challenges and Applications

16th September 2016

Data linkage is the process of identifying and linking records about the same entity across one or more databases. However, there are benefits as well as challenges associated with data linkage. For instance, enabling linkage between two or more sources of information can help maximise the value of research data, as well as adding high value to existing surveys and effectively creating new data resources. Policy decisions and much scientific research hinge on accurate and comprehensive data and those who are linking data want to do more.

Understanding the mathematics and physics of cell motility and pattern formation

9th December 2015

This workshop aimed to highlight new mathematical and computational problems and potential solutions involved in cell motility, morphogenesis and pattern formation. It brought together scientists working on these timely and challenging topics of mathematical biology, soft matter physics, image process and analysis, cellular biology, analysis and numerics, with other key stakeholders in industry and the public sector.
