Platform Activities

Platform support is used to employ key research staff in activities that underpin the Centre platform element for a core team of researchers building upon expertise from each institution and pulling together the framework within which the specific research projects can be integrated. Each of these researchers are charged with one critical technology area to ensure that new developments are captured and understood as they emerge, and that international networks are maintained and developed. National and international visits and short secondments of platform researchers are used to maintain and augment the academic network.
