A draft list of candidate themes of strategic importance to NERC and the insurance industry has been prepared by the Industrial Mathematics KTN. These (draft) themes are being reviewed in response to ongoing discussions with industry. A social network has been set up to enable contributions to be made to the development of strategic aligment within the SIG activities between NERC priorities and the insurance industry. If you are interested, please register to become a member of the social network. You are encouraged to contribute to a discussion on the industry priorities for the SIG. We are encouraging further responses from industry before incorporating the industry viewpoints into a redraft of the proposed themes. The aim of the workshops will be to further refine and prioritise the themes of common interest and develop outline project proposals.
