CPSE Industrial Consortium Meeting

The 2020 Annual Industrial Consortium will take place on 3rd and 4th December 2020. The agenda is below. You can register for the event here.  

Agenda for December 2020 Annual Consortium Meeting – All times GMT/UTC

The meeting will take place via MS Teams in two shortened sessions over two days. Day One is for sharing information, issues and ideas from Consortium members, and Day Two is about research going on in CPSE, plus discussion of future CPSE activity and events.

Taking advantage of the virtual format, we would welcome Consortium members inviting their colleagues to this event, and hope the proposed timings allow as much cross-company multination participation as possible.
