The Research Intelligence Programmatic Working Group serves as a liaison between the Standing Council and research intelligence contractor to ensure clear communication of data and information needs related to rapid response queries and to help inform and define topics for visioning events. With priority given to fulfilling the community’s best interest through a ubiquitous awareness of proportionate representation from underrepresented groups, the members of the Research Intelligence Working Group will ensure all recommendations are made with an objective, unbiased approach particularly regarding their own engineering discipline, professional affiliation, or other influences such as geographic region that would introduce inappropriate favoritism into the ERVA’s outcomes.
The need to source an inclusive pipeline of ideas, from diverse voices including early career researchers, is paramount to informing agile and innovative visioning events and outcomes. Early work shall focus on refining the research intelligence, visioning event, and resulting report process. As the Research Intelligence Working Group’s work matures, attention will turn to producing deliverables around efficient process documentation and content reports to share with and gather intelligence from the ERVA Community.
