The document which serves as the basis for the consultation is the RESEARCH AGENDA for 2011-2013 drafted by the QUROPE governing board. The document gives a motivation for the field, presents the challenges, explains the impact, lists the disciplines involved and describes the level of maturity of the field as well as the stakeholders.
By following this link you can participate to the consultation, where you may endorse the research agenda as it is, give comments wherever you think it is appropriate, and/or on anything else you feel is important. A QIFT mailbox is also available for sending additional material or any enquire you might have.
Useless to say it is extremely important that the community responds to the consultation and make it a success.
