b. The Newton Institute strongly encourages its long-term participants from overseas to visit other UK institutions during their stay. The Institute will pay the travel costs (but not accommodation, etc.) for such visits on request. Please alert the organisers of your local seminar series to this possibility, and direct them to the web page listing those participants who are interested in receiving invitations to travel http://www.newton.ac.uk/programmes/Speakers.html

The next bulletin will be sent in September. We hope you find these bulletins a useful way of keeping in touch and a helpful source of information to distribute to your colleagues.
