Details of the April 2016 Community of Interest Meeting, which was held in Cambridge on the topic of 'Ecosystems: different types of ecosystems and difference in best practice'.

The April Community of Interest (CoI) meeting took place in Cambridge, UK and was well attended by Alliance partners. The meeting focused on the topic: 'Ecosystems: different types of ecosystems and difference in best practice', which is a topic that has arisen from research that has been conducted in the ecosystem work stream. Multiple case studies were presented and detail workshops were conducted, discussing the different linkage types between companies in ecosystems. The outcome of the meeting was a definition of five different linkages and levers which influence which linkages between companies are good.

The next Community of Interest Meeting will take place on 12-13 July 2016 at the Caterpillar - Edwards Demo & Learning Center, Peoria, IL 61528, USA. The topic will be 'Updates from the CSA research work streams'.
