Research centres bring together stakeholders with common interests to dig into a defined research agenda. Membership in a centre allows your research dollars to go further by not having to cover the full costs.
The research guides each centre’s convening activity. Meetings are opportunities for you to engage with the content, stay on top of the issues, and learn from—and teach—other members.
