Partnerships
  • To continue to foster relationships with other Mathematics Museums overseas, and with related museums and science centres in the UK.
  • To foster relationships with local communities, local and central government, the media, industry and commerce, and academia
  • To run special events for Friends of MathsWorldUK
  • To harness the talents of the exceptional group of well-known young popularisers of mathematics in the UK to further the public understanding of mathematics through a series of public events about mathematics
  • To extend the range of expertise of people on our Advisory Panel

TO ACHIEVE THESE GOALS WE NEED CONSIDERABLE FINANCIAL SUPPORT, SO IT WOULD REALLY HELP IF YOU COULD DONATE SOMETHING, HOWEVER SMALL
