The CHIDS Research Council is an eminent group of researchers who provide
guidance for CHIDS’ research and projects. The Research Council will assess
CHIDS’ research portfolio, and set new directions based on industry trends and
scientific developments. The Council will be responsible for providing advice to
the director concerning the quality and adequacy of research activities and
research projects. It will actively craft and influence CHIDS’ research agenda.
In their efforts to strengthen the CHIDS research portfolio, members of the
Research Council may lead new research initiatives. They will represent the
director and can engage in discussions with CHIDS stakeholders and research
partners. Further, the Research Council establishes the criteria and defines the
process for reviewing CHIDS' research activities. Members of the Research
Council may collaborate with affiliated faculty and student fellows on research
projects. They also provide a foundation of expertise for publication
opportunities and are actively engaged in disseminating CHIDS research.
Each of CHIDS’ industry members will have a seat on the Research Council for the
duration of their membership contract. Other members of the Council will be
invited by the director to serve, drawn from CHIDS’ collaborators and other
academic institutions. The Research Council is managed by a chair, appointed by
the director. The tenure of members and the chair of the Research Council is for
three years, renewable by mutual agreement.
