We collate member opinions and respond to consultations.
We provide networking opportunities to support shared understanding, knowledge exchange, policy impacts, collaborative partnerships and commercial opportunities.
We ensure the sector is fully supported and encouraged to develop new systems, processes and business opportunities by supporting innovation networks and signposting research and development grant opportunities.
