A review of knowledge exchange in the mathematical sciences, chaired by Council for Science and Technology member, Professor Philip Bond, has been launched with support from EPSRC and Innovate UK's Knowledge Transfer Network (KTN). The review was proposed by a community meeting at the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) in Edinburgh in October 2015, where participants discussed examples of best practice across UK Universities, common issues faced in facilitating knowledge exchange and a potential roadmap for knowledge exchange in the mathematical sciences. A key outcome of the meeting was the identification of the need for an independent review to explore these themes in detail.

Both the Turing Gateway to Mathematics and the Isaac Newton Institute are engaged in the review and helping to facilitate it. 

The review seeks to cover all aspects of knowledge exchange - covering research to research interactions and research to industry (in its broadest sense) interactions.
The review is now seeking more information and is encouraging institutional / organisational responses to its call for evidence.
More information is on the Knowledge Transfer Network website and responses should e submitted by Friday 25th August 2017.
