We have been made aware of a convincing email scam that is focusing on our Programme and Workshop participants. Participants may receive an email from a firm called Expo Hotel Services (ehotelservices.org) to arrange accommodation for workshops and/or programmes. This might include a request to provide them with credit card information.
Please note, INI will never ask for your card details. We take all payments via the University of Cambridge Online store https://onlinesales.admin.cam.ac.uk/.
If you have been contacted by this company please contact us as soon as possible.
This programme is designed for the purpose of giving refuge to researchers in the mathematical sciences who have to leave their country of residence. The aim is not only to offer participants a safe home but also to enable them to continue their work and start new scientific collaborations.
Applicants should apply for support via one of the schemes listed below:
|INI Solidarity Satellite Programme||LMS Solidarity Welcome Grant||LMS Solidarity Supplementary Grant|
|Purpose||To provide a temporary home for up to twelve months at a UK academic institution for mathematicians having to flee their home.||To provide those mathematicians having to flee their country with some immediate financial support while they are travelling to the UK and/or incurring costs in the first month on arrival.||To provide supplementary financial support for those mathematicians who have had to flee their country and who have been able to find a home in the UK but are in need of further financial support.|
|Eligibility||All of these schemes are aimed at research active mathematicians of all stages including students working towards a doctoral degree.|
|Value||This scheme offers up to twelve months accommodation and a modest subsistence. The total value is up to £2000 per month (including accommodation). The participant will be matched with a mathematics department in a UK academic institution where participants will be official guests with access to the internet and libraries.||Applications for up to £3000 will be considered though it is expect that an individual grant is likely to be in the region of £1000.||The value can vary from a few hundred pounds (eg for a computer) to a supplement of the monthly income up to the UKRI limits. Thus for example, a participant on the INI Satellite Programme could receive supplement of £500 for each additional dependent up to £1000.|
|A Standard Visitor visa for academic visitors suffices. Alternatively, the "Homes for Ukraine" scheme can be combined with this scheme (https://www.gov.uk/register-interest-homes-ukraine).||No additional requirements. The grant can also be paid while the recipient is outside the UK. Indeed, it is expected that participants may choose to use the grant abroad to bridge the time it takes to apply for a visa to travel to the UK. It is expected that in most instances the grant is paid to a trusted academic partner.||No additional requirements.|
|Application||All applicants should apply by clicking the APPLY button after following the link for the relevant "workshop" listed below:
and email it along with a copy of their CV, including a list of publications, to firstname.lastname@example.org. Information will be shared with the organising team and selected members of staff at the INI and LMS as necessary.
Applicants must give clear evidence in their applications that they meet the criteria of the Solidarity Scheme. In particular, applicants must be reseearch active in the mathematical sciences and must need to leave their country of residence as a refugee of war or a political refugee.

INI is a creative collaborative space which is occupied by up to fifty-five mathematical scientists at any one time (and many more when there is a workshop). Some of them may not have met before and others may not realise the relevance of other research to their own work.
INI is especially important as a forum where early-career researchers meet senior colleagues and form networks that last a lifetime.
Here you can learn about all activities past, present and future, watch live seminars and submit your own proposals for research programmes.
Within this section of the website you should find all the information required to arrange and plan your visit to the Institute. If you have any further questions, or are unable to find the information you require, please get in touch with the relevant staff member or our Reception team via our contact pages.
INI and its programme participants produce a range of publications to communicate information about activities and events, publish research outcomes, and document case studies which are written for a non-technical audience. You will find access to them all in this section.
The Isaac Newton Institute aims to maximise the benefit of its scientific programmes to the UK mathematical science community in a variety of ways.
Whether spreading research opportunities through its network of correspondents, offering summer schools to early career researchers, or hosting public-facing lectures through events such as the Cambridge Festival, there is always a great deal of activity to catch up on.
Find out about all of these endeavours in this section of the site.
There are various ways to keep up-to-date with current events and happenings at the Isaac Newton Institute. As detailed via the menu links within this section, our output covers social media streams, news articles, a regular podcast series, an online newsletter, and more detailed documents produced throughout the year.
“A world famous place for research in the mathematical sciences with a reputation for efficient management and a warm welcome for visitors”
The Isaac Newton Institute is a national and international visitor research institute. It runs research programmes on selected themes in mathematics and the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period.
INI has a vital national role, building on many strengths that already exist in UK universities, aiming to generate a new vitality through stimulating and nurturing research throughout the country.During each scientific programme new collaborations are made and ideas and expertise are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction, which the INI building has been designed specifically to encourage.
For INI’s knowledge exchange arm, please see the Newton Gateway to Mathematics.
The Institute depends upon donations, as well as research grants, to support the world class research undertaken by participants in its programmes.
Fundraising activities are supported by a Development Board comprising leading figures in academia, industry and commerce.
Visit this section to learn more about how you could play a part in supporting INI’s groundbreaking research.
In this section you can find contact information, staff lists, maps and details of how to find INI’s main building in Cambridge.
Our administrative staff can help you with any queries regarding a prospective or planned visit. If you would like to discuss a proposed a research programme or other event, our senior management team will be happy to help.
