Research Advisory Panel

The Research Advisory Panel (RAP) informs AHRI’s research agenda and IP development, and provides commentary on HR issues.

The RAP is responsible for contributing specialist knowledge to assist AHRI’s National Accreditation Committee (NAC) in its role of updating the Australian HR Capability Framework (AHRCF).

The RAP informs the AHRI research agenda by suggesting key topics to be explored, providing input and advice on research methodology and the revisions of research proposals from external parties.
