Case Study: Satellite Workshops - Extending the reach and impact of INI programmes across the UK

The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI) was conceived and founded to be a national institution serving the entire UK mathematics research community. The proposal to SERC (EPRSC’s predecessor) made in August 1989, three years prior to the opening of the Institute, stated: “Its overall aim will be to stimulate research in the United Kingdom in all of the mathematical sciences”. Even earlier than this, acetates from a preliminary brain storming session where the concept of INI was being discussed included: “How to make the Institute truly National” as the first item on the agenda. To this day, all proposals to INI must justify how their proposed programme would impact on the UK research landscape.
