OnThursday 7th March SFI will host SFI Engage to discuss our new strategy. SFI Engage is an innovative day-long event using an open online discussion platform. You can participate, from anywhere, for all or part of the event (8am to 8pm). SFI Engage was developed for us by SFI Research Centre ADAPT. We want you to tell us what you think, to help further shape the future direction for SFI.
