We have chosen a number of themes to pursue over the next twelve months, which tie in with the Major Projects Association reports and events programme. We will be using these themes as a focus around which to curate content from the Major Projects Knowledge Hub and as the basis for campaigns of knowledge sharing activities and social media. Do let us have feedback on any of this activity and if you or your organization has insight that relates to our campaigns, then talk to us or just submit the insight for publication.
