Information Group

The purpose of the group is to help the CPHC maintain and enhance its public profile.

Its activities include gathering information and statistics on topics relating to higher education and computing, and to public policy on these.

Chair: Professor Carsten Maple

The Information Strategy Group advises the CPHC on information sources and works with other agencies such as e-skills UK, BCS and the IET in the implementation of the Information Strategy and preparation for lobbying.

The group also suggests pro-active measures and responses to specific issues, as appropriate to the CPHC Information strategy, and informs the CPHC Committee regularly on relevant Parliamentary activities such as the work of PITCOM and the Select Committees.

The activities of the group are sponsored by CPHC and e-skills.
