Introduction/ Background:

A Cross linkages meeting was held in Ottawa in May 2011 with the express aims to:

 (i) discuss current activities, in particular the new PPGs from a cross cutting perspective (ii) concentrate on new ideas that cross cut programmes and disciplines (iii) identify emerging issues and new frontiers on the horizon that are interdisciplinary.
