The goal of the Research Interest Groups is to facilitate the development of rigorous, competitive, and inclusive applications, including research proposal and funding applications.
Various Research Interest Groups have been established and continue to evolve according to the research domains, needs, and directions of The ORIGINS Project.
Researchers wishing to access, utilise or collect data from the ORIGINS cohort and database must be an ORIGINS Research Interest Group member and collaborate with other Research Interest Group members to promote cross collaboration and harmonisation with ORIGINS, other current sub-projects, researchers, clinicians, and community members.
The ORIGINS Research Interest Groups (RIGS)
facilitate new evidence, information and research opportunities in connection with The ORIGINS Project;
enable and support collaboration between researchers and The ORIGINS Project; and
provide a medium for research dissemination associated with The ORIGINS Project.
A goal of the groups is to facilitate the development of the most rigorous, competitive, and inclusive applications, including research proposal and funding applications. It is recommended that potential applications are presented at a relevant RIG meeting.
At RIG meetings, guest speakers and presentations from students, international researchers and community members are encouraged. Potential future sub-project ideas do not need to be fully formed prior to presentation at a RIG meeting, and it is preferrable to discuss sub-project ideas early to encourage collaboration and harmonisation during the planning stages.
Members may be representatives of community and/or industry groups, researchers, clinical staff, students, or ORIGINS Project team members. RIG membership is open to all persons who have an interest and expertise relevant to The ORIGINS Project and are willing to contribute this to the benefit of the project and its collaborators.
