We tell you

What are Special Interest Groups?

A close up picture of a lady with shoulder length hair and red lipsticksmiling These are sub-meetings of the main User Group at which customers from one industry sector discuss applications of the Triaster Process Library in their specific sector.

Claire Nuttall of the University of Bristol was the driving force behind setting up the Education Special Interest Group. This meets twice a year with an agenda typically as follows: 

  • An introduction and presentation from the host on their Triaster projects
  • Discussion around Education industry specific issues with the application of Triaster (usually 3 or 4 topics brought forward by attendees)
  • Raise topics for wider discussion in the main user group

Triaster's Education customers certainly get a lot out of attending them:

I found the Education User Group a focussed, informative and open forum which offers the ability to freely air your thoughts/concerns amongst like-minded people, who have both knowledge of your industry and similar experiences of the challenges we all meet in our drive for improvement. It is very encouraging to know that such support exists.
