This is a great idea:

Would propose that this could be one of the goals of the ISWC Workshop.

Subject: NIH Request for Information (RFI): To Solicit Input and Ideas for
Roadmap Trans-NIH Strategic Initiatives






I am posting this to the HCLS group, since we may want to consider being one of
the responders to this RFI...




Request for Information 

This RFI invites input and ideas from the scientific community, health
professionals, patient advocates, and the general public on ways to:

*	address specific barriers to basic, translational, or clinical research
through development of novel tools, technologies, services, etc.
*	fill knowledge gaps that impede research across a broad spectrum of
health science .  

We invite you to submit individual ideas and/or to view the ideas that have been
submitted to date. All ideas should meet the following criteria for new
trans-NIH strategic initiatives :

Is the proposed initiative truly transforming -could it dramatically affect how
biomedical and/or behavioral research is conducted over the next decade?

Will the outcomes from the proposed initiatives synergistically promote and
advance the individual missions of the Institutes and Centers to benefit health?

Does the proposed initiative require participation from NIH as a whole and/or
does it address an area (s) of science that does not clearly fall within the
mission of any one IC or OD program office?

Is the proposed initiative something that no other entity is likely or able to
do, and is there a public health benefit to having the results of the research
in the public domain ?

In addition to these general criteria, selection of initiatives will be based on
whether the proposed programs can either be achieved within a 5-10 year time
frame or can be expected to become integrated with IC funded research within
that time frame. The selection will also take into consideration current
research funding, with the intent of stimulating research in new or fledgling
research areas that also meet all of the criteria stated above. The ideas should
not be disease specific and should not address problems or opportunities that
fall under the purview of one NIH Institute or Center.
