We were thrilled that the work of the Virtual Forum for Knowledge Exchange in the Mathematical Sciences (V-KEMS) – a joint venture between the International Centre for Mathematical Sciences (ICMS), Isaac Newton Institute for Mathematical Sciences, Newton Gateway to Mathematics, and Innovate UK KTN – won the KE Team of the Year in the 2021 PraxisAuril KE Awards! We knew the team had worked hard to develop a unique KE offering, but we still didn’t expect to win!
