The University may only submit a single response. As such, the Office of Research is inviting the research community to submit feedback for inclusion in the institution’s response.

The deadline for the receipt of feedback is August 8, 2017.  Submissions are to be sent to Jill Rogers, Managing Director Research Operations, at

In the autumn, the Agencies will review the comments received, and prepare a final version to be distributed to institutions in January 2018, for signature by all parties by March 15, 2018.
