The Digital Futures PS Network meeting was held remotely for the first time on April 16th. Colleagues from across the University met virtually to hear updates from senior colleagues in areas relating to digital.

The meeting was opened by Digital Futures Strategy and Operations Manager, Sarah Barton, who welcomed colleagues to the meeting and delivered a short update on Digital Futures activity. This was then followed by presentations from John Whittaker, Head of Operations of the National Graphene Institute, and Nicola Telfer, Project Manager for Advanced Materials in Medicine at Manchester. Members of the meeting responded with thoughtful questions on facilities and funding, supporting the sharing of institutional knowledge and development of networks.

We also heard a short presentation from Matthew Harrison of the Manchester Urban Institute, who updated the network on the work of the Manchester Urban Observatory on air quality before and after lockdown measures took place. More information on this will be coming shortly on the Observatory’s Twitter account. Digital Futures Communications Intern Simon Croft then delivered a short presentation on capabilities and features of Zoom that the Digital Futures team have developed since moving to remote working.
The Digital Futures PS Network is a monthly meeting for senior colleagues working in digital-related areas across the University of Manchester to come together and share updates, knowledge and insight relating to their roles and synergies with Digital Futures challenges and capabilities. If you would like to join this network, please contact Sarah Barton.
