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.
