Our Steering Group operates as a ‘shadow board’, ensuring that our activities achieve the objectives of the initiative and are managed well. Individual members represent partner organisations, but their first priority is to deliver on the objectives of the initiative. Each of them has specific areas of responsibility within the group.

The group is chaired by two industry experts who are indepedent of any partner organisation. The day to day management of the initiative and support to the group is provided by our Network Director.
