09/04/2003 Archived Entry: "CAER Researchers Plan Strategy"
A CAER strategy session ("retreat"), stretching over two half days, was held with 18 CAER staff and four UK faculty associates attending. The meeting's purpose was to assess the technical progress and performance of the year since the last retreat, consider the current circumstances, and discuss plans for moving forward. The issue of the financial constraints, lack of cash flow from proposals and service/contract work as well as opportunities to rectify the gaps, were considered. The retreat was a good opportunity to share the technical content of the work between groups and to ensure that all researchers have an appreciation of the financial situation. Follow-up actions include that there will in the future be a CAER-wide technical "portfolio" meeting every four months to stimulate more collaboration between groups to improve the likelihood of winning proposals.
