The George Institute For Global Health
United Kingdom

Research and Development Advisory Committee (RADAC); Advisory Committee on Research, Impact and Strategy (ACRIS)

The Research and Development Advisory Committee (RADAC) is an independent body which meets approximately every five years. At its last three meetings, RADAC’s focus has been on assessment of the scope, content and quality of Institute’s research and development activities. RADAC provides advice on future research directions to the Institute Board of Directors and senior management. Its membership comprises highly respected individuals who have influenced health and medical research, or have shaped health policy and practice globally.

The next meeting of this Committee will be held in February 2018 with a changed focus. Within the scope of the Institute’s mission as well as the Institute’s ambition to ‘make a difference’ and to have a major impact on health policy and practice worldwide, the Committee’s members are invited to:

  • guide and assist the Institute in identifying key health challenges globally, over the next 5 – 10 years
  • review the Institute’s current and planned areas of focus and its activities, in terms of impact or potential for impact, on the identified key health challenges
  • make recommendations, regarding the best strategies for the Institute to pursue, to maximize its future impact on these challenges.

To reflect this change in focus, the Committee’s name was altered from RADAC to the Advisory Committee on Research, Impact and Strategy (ACRIS).
