Open for Business Events

Open for Business (OfB) events form part of the Institute's mission to foster greater links between academic research and the business world and are organised by the Turing Gateway to Mathematics (TGM). The TGM is the impact initiative of the INI and acts as a vehicle for knowledge exchange between the mathematical sciences and potential users of mathematics, such as industry and other academic disciplines in the UK as well as internationally.  

Open for Business events aim to bring together academic researchers in the mathematical sciences with industrial, commercial and government organisations and individuals to enable formal and informal discussion and networking. They are organised in conjunction with Research Programme academic organisers and take place within a relevant INI Programme Workshop or as a separate standalone event.

Open for Business events provide opportunities, at senior level, for cross-fertilisation between the business-facing activities and the research focus of the Institute. Events are structured to enable the formation of new relationships on the business-academic interface and to assist in identifying the common challenges that have greatest potential for research, knowledge transfer, public policy and commercial impact.

Upcoming Events

Uncertainty Quantification for Complex Systems – Development in Theory and Methodologies

15th June 2018

Uncertainty quantification (UQ) is a modern inter-disciplinary science that cuts across traditional research groups and combines statistics, numerical analysis and computational applied mathematics.
This workshop is part of the six month programme at the INI on  Uncertainty Quantification for Complex Systems: Theory and Methodologies and will take place towards the end of the Programme, so will focus on disseminating the key outputs and will highlight some potential outcomes that could be taken forward.

Statistical Scalability for Streaming Data

21st June 2018

Challenges in streaming data arise in numerous fields – consumer products, financial transactions, computer network traffic, transport and communications networks and energy systems are just some of them. As with statistical scaling generally, this requires an integrated approach.

Recent Events

Big Data and the Role of Statistical Scalability

28th February 2018

The ability to collect and store data has increased exponentially in recent years. So too have the challenges around managing the huge volumes generated and trying to extract meaningful information from it. This workshop is part of the six month programme at the Isaac Newton Institute (INI) on Statistical Scalability and is in collaboration with the EPSRC funded StatScale Network.

Taming Uncertainty in Mathematical Models Used in the Private and Public Sectors

1st February 2018

Understanding how uncertainty affects real decision-making is an essential part of developing uncertainty quantification (UQ) as a useful intellectual discipline. This event is part of the six month Programme at the INI on Uncertainty Quantification for Complex Systems: Theory and Methodologies and will concentrate on how to handle uncertainty arising from the use of mathematical models.

Mathematics of Imaging and Vision

6th December 2017

Imaging and vision is highly multidisciplinary – spanning mathematics, engineering, machine learning, computer vision and machine vision. There are numerous applications for this science in sectors such as medical imaging, security, geoscience, environment, food, manufacturing, agriculture, films, art and archaeology. This one day workshop forms part of the Isaac Newton Institute Research Programme Variational Methods and Effective Algorithms for Imaging and Vision.

Form & Deformation in Art, Toys and Games

1st December 2017

This event is part of the Isaac Newton Institute Research Programme Growth Form and Self-organisation.  Mathematicians and scientists who work on the physical aspects of art, on the art-making processes, and on the physics of toys, often work individually or in small groups disconnected from one another. This workshop aims foster exchange between different groups of researchers and practitioners and to establish links between researchers pursuing different diversions and perhaps begin forming a community.

Future Developments in Climate Sea Ice Modelling

25th September 2017

This one-day event, part of the Isaac Newton Institute Programme Mathematics of Sea Ice Phenomena, specifically addressed climate model representation of sea ice and also investigated fundamental and applied issues in mathematical modelling of sea ice. In particular, it sought to identify future priorities for climate sea ice model development.
