3DP-RDM Scoping Workshop 2016 – Discussion Activity 1 Outputs

In the same vein as the first scoping 3DP-RDM workshop in 2015, the 2016 scoping workshop featured two distinct discussion activities. These activities were aimed at identifying research topics for investigation during the feasibility studies that will be conducted later in the year.

The process used was the same as in 2015. For the first discussion activity this process is described in this earlier blog post.

Outputs of the prioritisation process

The following table summarises the list of 30 research topics that groups identified and the number of votes that each received during the prioritisation. Some of the topics were very similar and loosely clustered prior to voting. This similarity explains why several topics at the bottom of the list received few votes in comparison to those higher up the list.
