Annual General Meetings provide an opportunity to report on-going research, and to discuss research priorities and plans. They facilitate the interchange of ideas among academic, government, and business researchers and foster collaboration. At each meeting, a Theme Day is devoted to a single topic which may be a policy issue, an area of research, or a research methodology.
