Advisory Council

The Research4Life Advisory Council is a forum for direct engagement between the Research4Life user community and the partnership, providing a prominent voice for customers and supporting the early identification of trends, unmet needs, problems and opportunities from the research and library communities in recipient countries.  Our hope is that the discussions and issues which come from the Council will help support the success of Research4Life and frame its future strategic direction.
