Current Participants willing to Speak Elsewhere

All long-term participants in Newton Institute programmes are encouraged to give seminars at, or to make short visits to, UK institutions outside Cambridge during their stay. To support this activity, the Institute will cover the travel expenses involved for any participant who is formally invited to speak at another institution; the host institution is expected to cover any accommodation and incidental costs.

To assist organizers of seminar series at UK Universities in their search for relevant speakers, the Newton Institute maintains a register of those of its participants who are visiting from overseas for a period of at least two weeks, and who have indicated their willingness to give lectures or seminars elsewhere during their stay. This register lists their contact details, visit dates and key subject areas. Arrangements are normally made directly with the speaker via the email address given in the register; but the Institute will be happy to assist in cases where there are difficulties in making direct arrangements.

A complete list of all participants in each programme may be found by visiting the relevant programme's web page.
