Consultation Update

We have now published the results of the consultation and a response. Published documents include:

  • An Executive Summary of the Responses to the Consultation, available here.
  • A Detailed Report that presents the responses to the Consultation, anonymised and ordered by theme, available here.
  • AcadMathSci’s Executive Committee’s Response to the Consultation Feedback, available here.
  • A document listing the Questions Asked (and answered) at the Consultation Events is available here. A video recording of these events will be available shortly.

The rest of this web page contains the information published in Summer 2023, before the consultation results were published.


The Academy for the Mathematical Sciences is currently in its “proto-Academy” set-up phase. We are keen to consult widely: we have published a document containing an update on progress and consultation questions and want to seek your views to inform and shape next steps and to identify initial priorities for the Academy’s activities.

Consultation Period Overview

We are holding a Consultation Period from 26 April to 30 June 2023. As part of this:

1.We published a Progress Update and Consultation Document on 26 April

  • We have also produced a Summary document that is available here.
  • The entire document is available as a .pdf here.
  • We have partitioned the document and webpages into self-contained sections (linked to below) to make it easier to access only those parts that are of interest to you.
  • It is available as a series of webpages HERE.

2. We have published a list of questions on issues where we are actively seeking feedback.

  • The online questionnaire is set up so you can choose to answer only the questions on aspects of the Academy’s development that are of interest to you.

3. We arranged four Consultation events during May

  • The International Centre for the Mathematical Sciences (ICMS) kindly hosted these online events. Registration for these events is now closed. The dates of these Consultation Events were as follows:
    • Event 1: Thursday 4 May, 10am – 12 midday
    • Event 2: Tuesday 16 May, 4pm – 5pm
    • Event 3: Wednesday 17 May, 2pm – 4pm
    • Event 4: Wednesday 24 May, 4pm – 5pm

Much work has been done since the appointment in October 2022 of an Executive Director and Executive Committee for the proto-Academy and now is the time for us to consult the community again to ensure that you have the opportunity to input your views, provide feedback on the work we have done so far, and influence our thinking as we identify priorities and develop the organisational structure of the Academy.


We would be most grateful if you would complete the questionnaire which is available here.
