The Network Plus is currently developing a set of thematic areas around which further events and activities will be developed.  At our launch event in October 2016, a number of suggestions were generated.  Further work has been undertaken and the following 6 thematic areas have been chosen for further work:

Each of the thematic areas has been allocated a Champion from the Network Plus’ Executive Group and work to define the thematic area, outline its importance/value to Industrial Systems in the Digital Age and identify current research, including areas of excellence has begun.  The thematic area groups will report back in December 2017.

A further thematic area relating to Systems Analysis and Control will be developed in 2018.
