PATREC Research Advisory Committee (PRAC)

The PATREC Research Advisory Committee (PRAC) was established in 2016 following a recommendation of the PATREC Review.

Comprising one to two senior representatives from each partner organisation, chaired by a nominated representative of one of the government partners, elected by the Board, the objectives of PRAC are to:

  • introduce an element of formality and rigour to the research project identification, selection, support, monitoring and dissemination process;
  • enhance communication amongst partners; and
  • advise the Board on project level matters, allowing the Board to focus on strategic matters.
