The first EPSRC Five Centres Maths in Healthcare Workshop was held at the University of Glasgow from the 19th-21st September. The event was jointly hosted by the Liverpool and Glasgow Centres and brought together each of the five EPSRC funded groups – Cambridge, Exeter, Glasgow, Liverpool and London.
Even Storm Ali didn’t dampen the resolve to get together to share centre-wide updates and exchange successes with a view to scoping a path for ongoing sustainability. Participants including researchers, clinicians and industry stakeholders engaged and discussed their research, continuing the theme of collaboration in addressing current healthcare challenges. Representatives from the EPSRC attended and provided their perspective on the mid-term reviews and discussed the way forward.
A great success, the five centres have plans for further cooperation and joint projects with a view to scoping future funding applications in support of the mathematics in healthcare theme.
We look forward to meeting again in April 2019 in Cambridge to continue the great work started in Glasgow. Further information for the upcoming event is available here.
