What is the UK Knowledge Exchange Hub for Mathematical Sciences?
The UK Knowledge Exchange Hub for Mathematical Sciences (KE Hub) is part of the UK’s national Mathematical Sciences infrastructure and exists to promote, facilitate, and support knowledge exchange activities between Academia and Business, Industry, & Government.
The primary aims of KE Hub are to:
The KE Hub offers seed funding for some KE activities, opportunities to engage with business, government and industry and provides easy-to-access signposting of opportunities to engage in KE activities, in order to benefit Mathematical Sciences across the UK.
The KE Hub was established as a direct result of the Era of Mathematics independent review which stated that “a national centre in impactful mathematics for the UK should be created to work with industry and government to drive mathematical research through to commercialisation” – Professor Philip Bond.
