Coordination Programs are established when it becomes clear that a planned RD&E outcome could be achieved more successfully if activities and expertise are managed in a coordinated manner.

Coordination Programs will be critical to delivering outcomes set out in the FRDC R&D Plan 2020-2025. By linking research priorities and subsequent activities to end users and beneficiaries, Coordination Programs will ensure investment delivers impact.

Program management

All FRDC Coordination Programs will be managed by an expert committee, with the FRDC having one representative on each committee. Delivery of Coordination Program activities will be the responsibility of the Program Leader.
