How does the Council select topics to examine?

The Council has a thorough, ongoing process for selecting new topics, which is overseen by a Future Work Subgroup.

The Council consults widely with a wide range of organisations and individuals including government, institutes and societies, industry, non-governmental bodies and researchers engaged in biological and biomedical research to identify a number of potential future work topics that the Council may wish to consider.

For details about possible future work topics, how to suggest a topic, how we initiate a new project, and our topic selection criteria, see our Future work section.
