In the area of specification and modelling of concurrent systems, Petri nets have become a standard tool, and they still work behind the scenes in tools for graph transformation systems (cf. ). Moreover there is still potential for crossfertilization between the graph transformation and Petri net community. Even a better understanding of adhesive categories  and the related concepts of  seems possible in light of the proposed notion of weakly adhesive categories , which has emerged during work on the generalization of the co-reflective semantics of Petri nets to the realm of graph transformation and adhesive rewriting systems.
