Institute for Mathematical Innovation

Workshop support


IMI provides financial support for workshops organised by academic researchers at the University.

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.

To be eligible for support, your workshop has to involve an element of mathematics or data science. Support is given both to purely academic workshops as well as those that enhance external engagement or cross-campus collaboration. 


How we can support you

If you are hosting a workshop, we can help you financially, with a grant of up to £1000 per workshop.
