Major boost to UK mathematics funding

Following the UK Government's announcement regarding £300 million of funding for UK mathematics the ICMS Scientific Director Paul Glendinning said "The International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) is delighted that the Government has recognised the impact of mathematical research across society. The new funding will transform the level of support that ICMS offers for research activity, connecting researchers in the UK mathematical sciences community with each other, with international partners, with other disciplines, and with the industrial and public sectors. It will also enable ICMS to increase its support for early career researchers, vital for the strong development and growth of UK science, and to encourage international participants to extend their visits beyond ICMS to maximise the benefits that such visits bring to the UK."
