BIG Partnership Bursary Announcement – Talking Maths in Public 2019 – Thursday 29th – Saturday 31st August, 2019, Isaac Newton Institute, Cambridge

Talking Maths in Public is the UK’s national maths communication conference, and takes place every two years in locations around the country. TMiP 2019 will take place at the Isaac Newton Institute at the University of Cambridge on 29th-31st August, and will be a chance for people who work in communicating and promoting maths and related topics to meet others who communicate maths, and to participate in training, workshops and discussions.

Tickets for TMiP 2019 cost £115 for all three days, including lunch and refreshments each day and a conference dinner on Thursday evening – as well as the full programme of workshops, talks and informal networking activities. Details of the event are available on our website at, and if you have any further questions about the event, you can contact the organisers by emailing

BIG is offering a limited number of bursaries to BIG members who would not otherwise consider attending TMiP, covering the cost of a ticket to the conference (accommodation and travel not included). This could include those who work in more general science communication but would like to bring out the “M” in their STEM activities. If you wouldn’t normally include maths in your work, or are unable to attend for other reasons, this bursary is for you.

This Partnership Bursary is a pilot activity which supports our commitment to working with other networks and organisations that are relevant to BIG members’ interests.
