  • Conducting a medium term prioritisation exercise on mental health research needs for the medium term in conjunction with the R&D Directorate at Department of Health
  • Extending the NIMHE web presence to include R&D and with suitable links to other research web sites
  • Developing dissemination of research results through collaboration with the National Knowledge Service and the National Electronic Library for Health (NeLH)
