Stakeholder Engagement

Throughout the project we will be engaging directly with stakeholders through a series of workshops. The aim of these workshops is to ensure that the modelling work is applicable to stakeholders, as well as to communicate relevant results to interested parties. If you are interested in being involved in the project then please get it touch and we will keep you updated with workshops and events.
