Points for discussions

  • Area of collaborations between constellations
  • Potential growth areas for research based on current strengths and national needs
  • Main points of strengths / uniqueness and weaknesses/ challenges
  • Needed facilities/ resources
  • If the constellation was not selected for funding, how you plan to proceed to keep the momentum generated by forming this constellation and what type of support do you expect from UM administration?
  • Could any these constellations be combined, if requested by senior leadership this competition round, or in a future constellation competition?
