UPDATE - January 2016

This review was published in December 2015.  You can read about it and find a link to the complete report on our blog.


EPSRC are carrying out a review of Mathematical Sciences Infrastructure, where our working definition of Infrastructure is:

“Longer-term funding to enable collaboration and development of interconnections of the mathematical sciences community”, current existing examples include but are not limited to the Isaac Newton Institute, International Centre for Mathematical Sciences, LMS-Durham Symposium and Taught Course Centres. Past examples include the Study Groups with Industry”.

This Review is aiming to look at the contributions to the portfolio from existing infrastructure activities in the context of EPSRC strategic objectives and consider how the mathematical sciences landscape has evolved over time and identify what may be required in the future. Current infrastructure centres have all demonstrated excellence, in many cases over an extended period; this Review aims to consider how best to employ infrastructure to support mathematical sciences research and how the needs of the community can best be met. 

EPSRC would like to invite the Community to contribute to this review by sharing your views and experience via an online questionnaire. The survey is available at http://www.smartsurvey.co.uk/s/PCDO1/ and will remain open until the 18th May 2015

We hope that the community will take the opportunity to feed in their views and would like to encourage you to disseminate this survey further via your colleagues. If you have any further questions regarding the survey please contact mathsepsrc@epsrc.ac.uk.
