The Education group meeting was hosted by Claire Lorrain at University of Winchester on 6th September 2012 and as usual everyone gained a lot of value from sharing their experiences. It was good to see some new faces. Claire Lorrain gave a presentation of the Winchester process library, and outlined the involvement of students as a means to achieving a central buy-in, which had been expressed as a problem for many customers. The University of Bedfordshire has kindly offered to host the next meeting which has now been scheduled for 20th February at their Luton site.
