The Academy for the Mathematical Sciences (AcadMathSc) is currently in a "proto-Academy" setup phase. The full Academy will be an authoritative and persuasive voice for the whole of the mathematical sciences. We will work together to develop, communicate, teach and use the power of the mathematical sciences to benefit our world. This includes teaching and education, academic research pushing the frontiers of what is known, and the implementation of the mathematical sciences in practice. The Academy will be dedicated to supporting the advancement of the field ensuring that it delivers on its potential to enrich our world, by nurturing the people pipeline, and increasing societal engagement and recognition of the value, and indeed beauty, of mathematics. We know that the mathematical sciences improve lives, help people, help society, and improve the economy and productivity.

 We welcome the announcement that the government will support the creation of a National Academy focussed on the mathematical sciences and we look forward to arguing that AcadMathSci is uniquely well-placed to achieve the goals that DSIT and the community have set out, and should be chosen as the new National Academy for the mathematical sciences.

The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research

The Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (HIMR) is a strategic partnership between GCHQ and UK universities within which academic mathematicians contribute to problems of national security. It has facilities in Bristol, London and Manchester.

HIMR brings pure mathematics to bear on problems of crucial importance to GCHQ’s twin intelligence and cybersecurity missions, thereby helping to protect the United Kingdom and its citizens.

Part of the mission of HIMR is to support pure mathematics across the UK, and it does so in a variety of ways, including: the employment of fellows (who are encouraged to spend half of their time on publishable research), the development of a mathematical community with expertise in security and coding, and the provision of grants for mathematical events, outreach activities, and research activities.

At any one time the Heilbronn Institute typically has over 50 members.  These range from extremely distinguished senior visiting academics to postdoctoral researchers holding Heilbronn Research Fellowships. Since it was established, in 2005, over 200 mathematicians have been members of the Institute, including over 90 Research Fellows.


The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences

The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) In Edinburgh provides a venue and support for diverse international workshops in all areas of the mathematical sciences. For over thirty years we have been working with people from all over the world, creating international networks of mathematicians. We provide time and space for large and small groups to gather and think together, making connections that might not have been possible otherwise.

ICMS has a wide range of programmes and opportunities for funding to support the development of the mathematical sciences.


Launched in 2023 we have a new stream called Mathematics for Humanity. These activities are devoted to education, research, and scholarly exchange with the potential for direct relevance to the betterment of humanity. Please visit our webpages for more information:

We have an extensive knowledge exchange programme, bringing together academia, industry, and wider communities to maximise the impact of research.

We are delighted to have our Visiting Arts Fellow Yembe Tam join us to showcase her work at The Maths Summit.

ICMS receives its funding primarily from the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council

Isaac Newton Institute and Newton Gateway to Mathematics

The Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences (INI) is a world-leading international visitor research institute based in Cambridge. It specialises in long-term thematic residential programmes that bring together researchers from across the full breadth of the mathematical sciences as well as other collaborative disciplines. It attracts leading mathematical scientists from the UK and overseas to interact in research over an extended period. During each scientific programme new collaborations are made, and methodology, knowledge and ideas are exchanged and catalysed through lectures, seminars and informal interaction. INI is committed to promoting and communicating research mathematics broadly, supporting knowledge exchange, fostering the next generation of mathematical scientists, and creating an inclusive and diverse research environment.

The Newton Gateway to Mathematics is the impact initiative of INI and acts as a vehicle for knowledge exchange between the mathematical sciences and potential users of mathematics, including industry, government and other academic disciplines, both in the UK and internationally. It does this by making links and facilitating interactions and activities such as programmes of work, research and training events, as well as bespoke projects.

Mathematics for Deep Learning

Mathematics for Deep Learning (Maths4DL), is a 5 year, £3.5 million EPSRC Programme Grant, run jointly between the universities of Bath, Cambridge and University College London. Deep learning is a form of machine learning that uses vast volumes of data and complex algorithms to train a model to perform a task, allowing a system to automatically learn and improve from experience. It lies at the heart of Artificial Intelligence with many applications, from playing Go to medical imaging, and from generating and image to forecasting the weather. The aim of the Maths4DL grant is to put deep learning onto a firm mathematical basis by combining theory, modelling, data, and computation to unlock the next generation of Artificial Intelligence.

At all three institutions, we have researchers addressing the theoretical development of deep learning (so it is explainable) and algorithmic development (so it is trustworthy). We are also looking at how deep learning is used in the real world such as in weather forecasting, medical imaging, energy and telecommunications through our partnerships with industry. Also important to success of the grant is our outreach and public engagement work and our opportunities to engage with policy makers. Our stand will demonstrate how mathematics has been fundamental, not only in the early development of AI, but remains a crucial part of AI innovation.
