Monday, 12 October 2009 19:00



Results from the 2008 Annual Research Meeting (ARM) survey, which was administered online (via Survey Monkey) over a roughly 2.5 week period between September and October 2008, are now available online.

In a marked difference to the 2007 ARM survey, which was divided into sections covering both ARM and also general GCP issues, this survey focused entirely on the Annual Research Meeting held from 16–20 September, in Bangkok, Thailand, with the exception of one open, non-ARM-related question, which addressed the crucial subject of future investments, as follows:

“One of the purposes of the ARM is to map and/or validate future directions in terms of GCP’s investments in research. From what you gathered at the ARM, please state one clear area that you consider GCP should invest in as a top priority.”

Clustering the open-ended responses, we can report that nearly half of the respondents (44%) indicated breeding tools as the top priority for future investments.
