INI, as part of the UK’s higher mathematics infrastructure, is supporting the Academy for Mathematical Sciences. First conceived in 2018 and then formally announced in 2022, the Academy’s aim is to become “an authoritative and persuasive voice for the whole of the mathematical sciences”. Its goals include: supporting the “people pipeline” of those entering careers in the mathematical sciences; to provide a “voice at the table” where policy and funding decisions are made; and to champion the importance of mathematical excellence as a whole.
Full details of the conception and goals of the Academy can be found via the links below.
