MUCM going forward Team Meeting, July 2009
MUCM2 Two year project Starting 1 st October 2010 Finishing 30 th September 2012 People Continuation for most of our RAPS But only at 50% FTE (equivalent to just 12 months each) We have to get other funding to run alongside MUCM2 Flexibility will be essential Team working even more important Continuation for Jo (40%), me (20%), co-investigators (10%)
Research Exploring and scoping new areas Developing only far enough to break the ground Publish initial findings and/or case studies Draw up research proposals Objective is to set up grants and contracts to tackle these new areas And so to take MUCM forward beyond MUCM2 Four workpackages 1. Random outputs 2. Informing decisions 3. Heterogeneity 4. Building the community
Random outputs Different types of random simulators Micro-simulation models in health economics Agent-based models Systems biology models Stochastic finite elements models Challenges Emulating a distribution Design Model discrepancy Calibration Dynamic emulation Extremes Superparametrisation
Building the community Toolkit More introductory material and examples New stuff, too Short courses At conferences in targeted application areas Video podcasts/seminars Linked to/from toolkit Website Community resource .ac.uk address Sustainability
Where does this leave MUCM? We must complete the research programme MUCM2 is not there to finish things we didn’t complete in MUCM Workpackages based on doing new research will deliver Themes 1 and 2, plus 3.1 But concentrate now on completing research, publications We have to make special efforts to deliver on - Toolkit Case studies MUCM will be judged on these Management becomes important again!
