We’d like to thank everyone who participated and are delighted to now share the findings during these meetings, where we will also outline next steps. This will include establishing a number of work streams during the next few months to evaluate best practice and take this work forward.

We are also keen to answer your questions, therefore please submit any you might have via the FTP email address in advance: ftprogramme@admin.cam.ac.uk or there will be an opportunity for Q&A during the session.
