The A*STAR University of Liverpool workshop is taking shape. Virtually everything has been done by Jon Hobley at IMRE. Without his help it would never have seen the light of day. So Sunday was devoted to basic secretarial work, pulling together itineraries for 20 academic staff, extracting 20 CVs from one large PDF and sending e-mails left right and centre to A*STAR investigators across nine Research Institutes.
So far so good and we are in good shape, a few final details to figure out with Jon on Monday, including the venue for dinner! Somewhere convivial where people can mix. My own preference would be a Hawker Centre, a brilliant Singaporean invention, perfectly designed for stimulating networking, but probably not to everyone’s taste.
then on to NUS, followed by NTU on Friday and a reception at the British Embassy.
