GRBN Programme 2012-2013
Following meetings in London and Miami attended by representatives of national associations from 17 countries, a programme of work for 2012-13 was agreed.
EFAMRO will lead development in the area of standards and self regulation. This will include a comparison of existing codes of conduct used by GRBN members. In identifying areas of commonality and difference, this document will assist research businesses seeking to expand into new markets. It will also lay the ground for future discussions on revising and reconciling codes where possible.
ARIA will lead the development of new initiatives to measure the growth and predict the future development of the research sector. This will build on ARIA’s successful State of the Business Survey and will encompass all GRBN member countries, including major developing markets.
APRC will lead development of GRBN information resources. This will not only create a central resource for shared knowledge and information, but will also feed into the development of conferences, training and qualifications across the network. It will be the cornerstone of a community of practice dedicated to promoting and advancing the business of research.
