The UK mathematical community is supported by a myriad of official and unofficial networks, some of which exist only virtually. To help support and grow these groups, the INI initiative “Network Support for the Mathematical Sciences” was introduced in 2022. It provides modest funding packages of between £5,000 to £25,000 so that these networks can continue and intensify their work, and so that new networks can be formed. Both national and international networks are eligible to apply, and costs covered can include international travel by UK residents as well as travel by non-UK researchers to the UK.
Activities undertaken by INI-funded networks are independent of the research programmes hosted by INI throughout the year. However, their outputs are greatly facilitated by INI’s support.
Listed below are the networks that have received funding so far.
