Institute for Mathematical Innovation

Collaborate with us

Mathematics underpins all modern science and technology, and its application can deliver exceptional results in most industries and areas of research.            

Industry and interdisciplinary research collaboration

We work with industry clients in a variety of sectors. By analysing big data, simulating outcomes and modelling complex phenomena, we deliver innovative commercial solutions and exceptional results to companies of all sizes. We also support cross-campus research activities at the University of Bath and collaborate with researchers globally. 


Industry collaboration

Our Commercial Research Associates work with academics from across the University of Bath to solve problems for companies and the public sector. They provide short-term consultancy services or work with industry on larger joint research projects.

In close collaboration with our business partners, we improve processes, simulate outcomes, optimise resource usage and enhance the understanding of complex phenomena. View our case studies.

We also run bespoke scoping and problem-solving workshops with businesses and public sector organisations, often leading to both short and long-term collaborative projects.

Research collaboration at the University of Bath            

Interdisciplinary research proposals and funding

We support the development of research proposals where there is a benefit from collaboration with the mathematical sciences. Contact us to discuss your ideas and learn how we could help.             

Support for workshops organised by academic researchers

Each year, Bath IMI supports a number of workshops organised by academic researchers. A workshop is typically a 1-5 day meeting that brings together academic researchers providing an opportunity for networking, exchanging ideas, problem solving or identification of areas for collaboration. Participants in workshops may also include industrial researchers and practitioners.            

Join IMI as an internal secondee

Our internal secondment scheme for staff at the University of Bath offers exciting opportunities to link up researchers across campus, develop new projects, and work with industrial partners.                         

Undergraduate research internships

IMI's undergraduate internships are a fantastic opportunity for students to gain research experience and get a feel for what it is like studying for a PhD. Apply now for one of the 20 internships we are offering during the summer of 2019.

National and international visitor programme

Spanning Global Chairs and senior academic visitors, IMI hosts a successful academic visitor programme designed to attract high-profile scholars to engage in research activities at the University of Bath. We can support five senior academic visitors a year with a maximum of £6,000 per visit to cover travel and subsistence costs.
