Second meeting

The RSE Digital Scotland Working Group met today.

It was agreed that Professor Michael Fourman would be the chair of the working group.

A draft scoping paper that had previously been circulated was discussed and a number of comments and suggestions made - these will be taken on board and a revised scoping paper, suitable for briefing organisations and individuals we wish to consult, will be circulated.

To help frame the questions for consultation, we will build the framework of issues that the final report may be expected to cover, and perhaps to identify some areas that it would not be feasible or worthwhile to address in the course of this work.

The two pieces of work identified above will be completed before the next meeting of the group, on 10th February. Interviewing of witnesses and gathering of evidence will commence after this meeting.
