The Alliance has agreed the next steps for further developing the Strategy and Results Framework (SRF) and the portfolio of Mega Programs derived from it. Based on further inputs by Centers and partners, the analytical basis of the SRF will first be strengthened, and a new version of the document produced by the end of January. This will be widely shared within the Alliance and with key GCARD partners. A face to face meeting of the Alliance, Consortium Board, GCARD global consultants, GFAR representatives and Science Council members will be held in early February 2010. Participants at this meeting will further consider the derivation of a portfolio of MPs from the SRF. There will also be a day of discussion with Fund Council members at this time. This should result in an agreement to present a set of MPs for further consultations and deliberation at the GCARD in Montpellier. The inaugural Consortium Board will then finalize the SRF and portfolio of MPs, in consultation with the Fund Council, for submission to the Fund Council shortly after the GCARD.
