User Groups


The Institute has user groups which meet the specific needs of members with particular interests.

Figure 1 shows some of the user groups that exist at the time of writing. Further groups may be established as topics arise.

The Institute facilitates a number of user groups focusing on promoting and advancing new technologies, with an aim to share methodologies and recommend standardisation and best practice as appropriate.
