Over the summer months we want to consult with our stakeholders to get your input for the next Health Research Board strategic plan.
Our current plan comes to an end in 2020 and we want to be in a position to hit the ground running with the new one at the start of 2021. To do that, we need to have the next strategy in place in mid-2020.
Between now and about the end of August we want to consult as widely and as comprehensively as we can with all of our stakeholders. This consultation process will involve meetings, workshops with multiple stakeholder groups as well as an online survey, which we hope as many people as possible will contribute to.
The outcomes from the consultation will contribute to an international expert advisory panel who will meet in October to assess our strategy performance to date, draw together some key emerging themes and offer their international perspective on future directions for health research in Ireland.
We will then spend the next five to seven months drafting the strategy itself as well as devising an action plan that will underpin how to deliver it.
How to contribute
We want our next strategic to be as comprehensive, as ambitious, and as visionary as possible. We also want to make sure that our strategy 2025 builds on what we’re already doing well, and sets us up to succeed with future challenges and opportunities in health research.
We would like to invite everyone to participate in the online survey. Please note the survey will close on 10 July 2019.
We will also be in contact with various groups of stakeholders directly to organise meetings or invite participation in workshops and the survey.
We hope that over the next few months you can make the time to participate, and we very much look forward to hearing from you and listening to your ideas.
