News: Workshop Report now available

The Research Grand Challenges for Systems Engineering workshop provided a forum to discuss the main concerns for systems engineering practice and research in the UK. The objective of the workshop was to identify what are the key challenges in the understanding and analysis of complex systems, their emergence, organisation and behaviour, and the utilisation of tools including modelling and visualisation to understand their complexity, document their evolution and access the relevant information about them. The workshop provided an opportunity to formulate, discuss and reach a consensus amongst a group of participants from industry and academia. The resultant set of Research Grand Challenges is presented in this report and is intended to signal the areas of systems engineering where breakthroughs are required. The identification of the Grand Challenges is expected to a) facilitate collaboration across research groups, b) signal the areas where research efforts should be focussed and c) influence funding organisations to support the research.
