A nexusplus proposal has been submitted and evaluated

A NEXUSPLUS proposal has been submitted and evaluated

This aims to:

  • Provide a meeting place for IPs and NOEs both in Growth and IST.

    • Hold 6 monthly meetings (alternately in the East and the West)

    • Provide world class speakers (to benchmark activities)

  • Provide support for SMEs to attend USC and IP/NOE meetings

  • Provide support for NAS participants to organise, and attend USC and IP/NOE meetings

  • Continue with an updated website, the Ezine and MST News

  • Examine practicality of self-funding

  • Plan how to maximise the effect of the funding to support those activities we need

    BUT

  • This depends on the proposal passing. If it does then I am reasonably confident that we can continue and rapidly increase both SME and NAS involvement
