Dr Matthew Connell, director for policy and public affairs, welcomed the 2023/24 cohort during the introductory session and expressed his excitement over the projects they’ll be presenting to the CII Group board at the end of the year.

“The New Generation programme is an exceptional development opportunity that will provide invaluable experience,” he said. “Our successful participants should be very proud to have gotten through a challenging application process. I wish them all the best in their work over the coming year and look forward to seeing their outputs next year.”
