ExIStA Gain EPSRC Funding

The Exeter Initiative for Statistics and its Applications have been successful in their bid to win funds from the EPSRC’s Bridging the Gaps Initiative via the Exeter Science Exchange programme. The funds will help cover the cost of six events spread across the year as well as a launch event planned for November.

“This is great news for ExIStA and will help us start bringing local statisticians together to share interests, skills and expertise” says ExIStA director, Steve Brooks. “Our launch event is planned for November and then we hope to have subsequent events every two months or so after that. There will be seminars, mini-conferences, training opportunities and networking events all aimed at helping to bring statisticians together and to support statistical activity within the region”.

Event details will be posted on the ExIStA web site as they are announced and any enquiries or suggestions should be directed to Steve Brooks: s.p.brooks@exeter.ac.uk.
