June 2019 – Kelly Sears is partnering with Hickling Arthurs Low to conduct a major review of 31 R&D programs launched by NRC between 2012-13 and 2017-18. The objectives of the review are to assess the performance of all 31 programs; assess their value-for-money; and identify lessons learned.  The study will involve an extensive document and literature review; the conduct of 45 interviews within NRC and with program clients; and the conduct of several case studies. The study will be completed in March 2020.
