Cross-cutting themes

Four cross-cutting themes provide critical infrastructure and tools to support the four broad research areas.

Together, the cross-cutting themes and research areas (or pillars) of APPRISE provide a flexible and coordinated national research network.

The cross-cutting themes create skills and technologies and provide for the future of Australia’s response with a skilled workforce and national and international networks.

Examples of skills, infrastructure and tools include:

  • Ethics – provide pre-established ethics approvals for urgent research, research ethical barriers to policy changes
  • Data management – improve urgent data collection and use during infection emergencies, develop systems and processes to promote data sharing
  • Education and training –promote development of our future infectious diseases research workforce, including establishment of an Early Career Researcher (ECR) program
  • Partnerships, collaboration and translation – ensure engagement and dialogue with relevant key stakeholders nationally and internationally, disseminate and translate our research findings.
