The core team, based at University Research Co., LLC (URC), functions as the “Research Systems Integrator” (RSI). Borrowing the systems integrator concept from the technology field, the RSI serves as a neutral broker to bring together different capacities and partners to ensure they function together toward the common goal of making evidence accessible to decisionmakers.

This function requires alignment of stakeholder purpose and priorities, support to sustainable partnership development, facilitation of research-to-use processes, and the provision of financial, technical, and administrative support. Meet the management team below.
