Innovation Strategy
Steering Group.

The Innovation Strategy Steering Group (ISSG) includes representatives from our partners in the University sector, industry, national bodies, the CHI executive and our foundation (CHF). The full membership is listed below.  The ISSG came together on two occasions; firstly, to initiate the strategy development process and to discuss and advise on key areas of focus and secondly to finalise the draft document for publication and launch.  Between these workshops, the group gave feedback on strategy themes and various draft documents.
