While we have achieved significant success in establishing a framework that brings forward new R&D projects, and disseminates the findings thereof, a step change in performance requires further measures. It is therefore proposed to engage consultants to assist us in developing a technology roadmap.

This map will take the output of a study of ‘aspirations for a future network’ to be developed internally, and lay out a route to achieve those aims through conventional, near market and radical solutions. In turn, this map is intended to create a framework for us to generate ITTs for pro active R&D work.

The projects that would be brought forward will complement the existing portfolio of internally generated short term projects, medium term activities such as Supergen, SFCL, DCR and FLM by providing a layer of long term developments

To create a roadmap for developing technology to meet the likely future demands upon our network.
