To the CRA community –
I’d like to take this opportunity to give you a progress update on the CRA strategic planning effort. Over the course of October and November, the consultants from Greenway will hold focus group interviews with the steering committee for CRA-WP, the membership of the CCC, and the staff of CRA. They will also conduct interviews with individuals representing a variety of stakeholder groups for CRA, including academic and industry thought leaders, federal funders, heads of industrial and government research labs, and non-member institutions. In the spring, there will be an opportunity for all member institutions to provide input via a survey. In the meantime, if you have questions or comments on the strategic planning effort, please do not hesitate to contact me or a member of the steering committee.
