Our strategy

Every five years, we commission a landscape and situation analysis to inform future decision-making within Research4Life. In 2020, Research Consulting conducted the study, assessing the shifting dynamics and external influences relevant to equitable access to research.

This webinar discusses the key findings, and you can also download the presentation.

Our first strategic plan, “The Path to 2015”, was produced in 2006 and was based on the findings and recommendations of the previous year’s user and infrastructure reviews. In 2011 we published “Beyond the 2015 Horizon”. Our latest plan, “Our vision for 2020 and beyond“, provides an overview of the context and current structure of the Research4Life partnership.
