The IRIOS-2 workshop was held in Jesmond on 18th October and the project team was able to provide a live demonstration of the service.

The workshop afforded us the perfect opportunity to assess IRIOS-2 im a commercial light, and we were able to explore options of offering the service to other ROs in the near future.

Feedback from those in attendance was positive and discussions were informative and interesting.
