We have appointed Cambridge University Technical Services (CUTS) as our Technical Advisory Group (TAG) and ‘critical friend’.

They provide independent technical advice that informs the strategic direction of the programme and reviews the quality of approach and outputs. It provides scrutiny of and advice on the programme through critiquing the quality and value of the approach and outputs. It also provides a conduit to a wider knowledge base from academia and within industry.

Grantees and partners to date

In addition to Arup, and the Lloyd's Register Foundation, we have worked with or are working with a number of collaborators. To date, at the end of our second year, we have engaged directly with over 360 individuals and over 170 organisations including over 50 academic institutions. These stakeholders fall broadly withing the groupings: industry bodies, government, global organisations, research institutes, non-profit organisations, specialist consultancies, and infrastructure owners/operators.
