New IGD-TP position paper published providing WMO College feedback on revision of the EURAD SRA
The IGD-TP has just published its position paper providing feedback from the EURAD Waste Management Organisation (WMO) College on plans for revision of the EURAD Strategic Research Agenda (SRA).
EURAD is at the mid-point of the 5 year Joint Programme and the Bureau is responsible for preparing a plan and developing and agreeing a process by July 2021 for the update of the existing EURAD SRA, which is to be completed by February 2023. The EURAD SRA update serves two purposes: (i) to take stock and reflect on progress made during 2019-2023 and capture emerging needs from across the Colleges, and (ii) to act as an input for a potential future EC joint programme.
The Bureau has established a (temporary) SRA update coordination team with a representative from each College, along with support from the Project Management Office (PMO). The first action of this team is to obtain inputs from the three EURAD Colleges to establish common boundary conditions and generate shared ideas on how the SRA update should be done. This input is to be obtained via two means: (1) a half-day workshop in June 2021 with up to three attendees from each College, and (2) a coordinated response from each College to the contents of the Bureau paper “Update of the Strategic Research Agenda (SRA): Process agreement between Colleges”, issued in April 2021. This position paper presents the coordinated response from the WMO College to the questions raised in the above-noted Bureau paper.
