Global advisory committee on research, impact and strategy
The Advisory Committee on Research, Impact and Strategy (ACRIS) is an independent body which meets every five years. ACRIS provides advice on future research directions to the Institute’s 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 last meeting of the committee was held in February 2018. Within the scope of the Institute’s mission, as well as the Institute’s ambition to have a major impact on health policy and practice worldwide, ACRIS members helped:
- guide and assist the Institute in identifying key health challenges globally over the next five to 20 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; and
- made recommendations regarding the best strategies for the Institute to pursue to maximise its future impact on these challenges.
