Isaac newton institute l.jpg
Isaac Newton Institute collaboration?

  • UK national and international visitor research institute, based in Cambridge.

  • Runs 4 – 6 selected advanced research programmes annually in the mathematical sciences with applications over a wide range of science and technology.

  • Attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact over an extended period.

  • Excellent research environment, experienced and committed staff.

  • Interdisciplinarity and collaboration key part of mission.
