Now we have a better idea of the CRI’s reason for being …… maybe
(sticK - Nov. 17 2010 )
Well, we now have a better idea of the Crown Research Institutes’ purpose in life following their release of statements of core purpose (SCP).
It follows on from a CRI Taskforce report in Feb. 2010 in which a major recommendation was to provide an individual CRI’s ‘clear, explicit and enduring strategic role’.
The SCPs were to be developed through high-level dialogue with CRIs and their stakeholder communities, and avoid duplication and boundary issues between CRIs, as well as noting areas where there is need for collaboration to progress national goals.
The SCPs outline each CRI’s purpose, outcomes, scope of operation and operating principles, in a two page format.
