The IMI research fellowship scheme is the main engine that drives the IMI’s research portfolio. By adding value to research through a number of different mechanisms, including
- The inclusion of IMI MIRAs,
- Supporting the development of external partnership,
- Assisting with the realisation of impact,
- Our process of grant enhancement,
Our research engages with mathematically innovative research across a number of themes. Including:
Knowledge Exchange, Industry and Impact
Knowledge exchange is a means to share information and expertise within academic circles and with outside partners (including industry, charities, business and policy makers), leading to mutual research and impact benefit. The IMI works closely with the Knowledge Transfer Network.
The IMI was a key member in the foundation of the Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences which is heavily engaged in addressing the problems brought by the COVID-19 pandemic among other topical research areas.
IMI is involved in the European Maths in Industry Network MI-NET and supports industrial mathematics collaborations across the world through the network of international study groups. The institute has a strong and growing portfolio of industrial partners; find out how to partner with us on our Industry Engagement pages
