–          Possible third speaker on topic of control algorithms and systems but I am still awaiting confirmation

–          Discussion around the group on current projects (don’t have to contribute to this) and any issues/challenges faced

–          Discussion around the direction of the group – are we meeting often enough? Are we discussing the right things? What other opportunities should we be looking at? Do we need to formalise things?

–          Date of next meeting – offers of venue

–          Tour of laboratory facilities:  there will be two different labs (wind tunnel plus photonics) to visit.
