At the Quantitative Sciences Research Institute, we recognise that science, engineering, medicine and elements of the social sciences are becoming more quantitative in approach. This creates opportunities for mathematical tools and techniques to play an increasingly prominent role in interdisciplinary research. Our affiliated programmes in Precision Healthcare, Metamaterials, Finance and Aerodynamics are all examples of mathematicians collaborating with other scientists to deliver interdisciplinary research with strong potential for impact.
Our objectives are as follows:
- To facilitate the interaction of scientists from different disciplines around the theme of 'quantiative sciences'
- To help break down language barriers between different disciplines
- To match the right quantitative approaches, tools and capabilities to scientific questions

Delivering our objectives
The Quantitative Sciences Research Institute co-sponsors high quality research workshops on topics that support its mission to enable interactions for modelling and quantifying interdisciplinary phenomena. The intended format is for participants, who are experts, to come together to exchange the latest developments and ideas in their areas, to foster new collaborations and new interdisciplinary interactions, and to provide a forum for vigorous research-oriented discussions.
