Q2 2017 Programme Spoiler

Colleagues should be aware that in Q2 there will be a funding review at the mid March Collaborative Research Seminar.

Planning for a key internal programme tagged Indigo is being performed and significant funding redirection will be needed for this key internal programme.

This will mainly impact outreach projects that have not yet started as Collaborative Research UK and EU starts to focus on Indigo for 2017-2019. Apologies if this spoils some of your expectations.

Contact Afton in the UK or Inga in Madeira at the Seminar if you want to discuss any of this.

LabNet

Collaborative Research has an outreach system called LabNet (www.labnet.org.uk) that is used to provide a day to day working environment for programme collaboration.

The CRF Virtual Research Centre (VRC) has a focus on on computer research in the commercial technology sector.

The CRF Technology Research Centre (TRC) has a focus on computer research for the Financial Services Industry.

Collaborative Research programmes - downtime of services

Collaborative Research sometimes has downtime for internet based Research, Development and Laboratory services.

There are always reasons for this including:

1) SMART UPDATES to technology, for example software patching, requiring a small period of service interruption. This can affect a small part or all of the Collaborative Research facilities in the UK centres, or worldwide.

CRIT3

The Collaborative Research Information Technology Think Tank (known internally as CRIT3) is a group of experienced IT professionals who advise on technology futures and event horizon probabilities.

Knowledge from the CRF and CRI is used to extrapolate futures as forward looking statements. We must ask you to note this caution regarding any Forward-Looking Statements:

Certain perspectives communicated by the CRIT3 group, including future expectations, beliefs, goals or prospects, and any statements that are not statements of historical facts are forward-looking statements.
