PLM-IRF calls for input to Global Research Meeting Agenda

Oxford, England. November 18, 2014 -- The proposal to establish a new PLM International Research Foundation that can fund advanced research into Product Lifecycle Management has support from almost 30 countries. It is now time to hold a round-table meeting to debate the aims, structure and potential benefits of the new organisation.
A Launch Meeting will therefore be held in Brussels, Belgium on 27-28 January 2015. This will be the first time that users, vendors, academics and industrialists will have been able to debate the issues and potential for advanced PLM in an open forum.
This will be an entirely open meeting, for PLM practitioners from any type of organisation, and from any country. The aim is to capture the views and expertise of everyone who wants to shape the way that PLM might look in 10 or 20 years' time.
The Brussels meeting is important because it will set the main parameters for PLM research capability in the future and, if successful, will form a 'Pathfinder Group' to develop the initiative through 2015.
If there is sufficient support then there will be follow-on meetings in other parts of the world, but Brussels will be the start of everything. It is therefore important that the programme is effective. A Draft Agenda has been published, and we are asking for comments and feedback on its content.
There is more information about the PLM-IRF on the PLMIG web site; and you can send comments about the Agenda or the initiative as a whole via Email Contact.
