With the CAMS Ltd entity established in a flurry of end of year activity, it has been business as usual this month - continuing to assign the initial stakeholder contributions to build on the 3 lectureships, 10 fellowships and 3 post-doctoral positions being added through CAMS to the wider analytical family around the UK. Focus is shifting also towards the longer term sustainability for the analytical family with new members already lined up and eager to join the initiative.
Current UKRI initiatives may offer the first opportunity for the analytical family to come together to explore deeper collaborations between existing, and with new, industry and academic partners; to embed and develop upon the first e-learning training materials available in June this year; and to support the wider framework activities.
Wider discussions around the role for CAMS within predictive analytics and standards in support of key sectoral digital manufacturing initiatives being proposed is gaining traction and political visibility. Planning for the first CAMS Annual Conference in London in Sept 2020, to celebrate its tec
hnical and skills development achievements, is also underway. Here’s looking to 2020 offering CAMS much more than just good vision!
More next month.
