LMS Research Schools on Knowledge Exchange with support from the Heilbronn Institute for Mathematical Research (HIMR) and UKRI



The London Mathematical Society Research Schools on Knowledge Exchange are designed to provide training in Knowledge Exchange between mathematical research and users of mathematics. The Research Schools provide training for research students and post-docs in Knowledge Exchange and in the underpinning mathematics.  
The LMS Research Schools take place in the UK and support participation of research students from both the UK and abroad. The speakers are expected to be international leaders with experience relevant to Knowledge Exchange.  The LMS Research Schools in Knowledge Exchange are a new venture modelled on the successful series of LMS Research Schools. Applicants may like to model their application on successful applications for Research Schools in 2019. These Research Schools were:

1. PDEs in Mathematical Biology - Modelling and Analysis, ICMS, Edinburgh, 29 April - 3 May 2019. 

2. Random Structures: From the Discrete to the ContinuousBath 1-5 July 2019. 

3. Mathematics of Climate, Reading, 8-12 July 2019. 

4. Rigidity, Flexibility and Applications, Lancaster, 18 - 22 July 2022
