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

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.

Future Developments in Genome Resequencing

3rd August 2010

Workshop Theme

The motivation for our workshop is to bring together leading mathematical and biological researchers in an interdisciplinary environment to discuss the mathematical, statistical and computational challenges that lie ahead. We plan to discuss the most pressing open problems and the most promising avenues of future research necessary to deliver the full benefits of genome resequencing.

This event is a followup meeting from the Statistical Challenges Arising from Genome Resequencing (CGR) programme
