All longterm participants in Isaac Newton Institute programmes are encouraged to give seminars at, or to make short visits to, UK institutions outside of Cambridge during their stay. To support this activity, the Institute will cover the travel expenses involved for any participant from a nonUK based home institution who is formally invited to speak at another UK institution; the host institution is expected to cover any accommodation and incidental costs.
To assist organisers of seminar series at UK Universities in their search for relevant speakers, the Isaac Newton Institute maintains a register of those of its participants who are visiting from overseas for a period of at least 14 days, and who have indicated their willingness to give lectures or seminars elsewhere during their stay. This register lists their visit dates and key subject areas. To make arrangements, please email: reception@newton.ac.uk
The lists of all participants in each programme may be found by visiting the relevant programme’s web page.
