Since its launch in 2011, GRBN has made great progress bringing together the national research associations across the globe, sharing expertise and best practice to the mutual benefit of all 38 associations. GRBN needs to build on this initial success, strengthening its global brand, improving recognition of GRBN within research and the business sector, and expanding its programmes and initiatives – such as the Trust & Personal Data Survey – to develop and promote the business of research.Debrah Harding
In times of deep change it is more necessary than ever for the industry to converge to the long claimed ‘One industry, one voice’ vision for collaboration. I am pleased to work together with GRBN colleagues to contribute to the digital -mindset and technology- transformation.Enrique Domingo
