Governance Model

Our Team Governance Model draws on elements of successful research-to-practice networks. We emphasize frequent exchanges among team members – Project Leaders, Co-Investigators, Knowledge Users, and the Scientific Advisory Board. This model allows us to reach outcomes that could not be realized by team members individually, and to apply best practices in managing research studies, monitoring progress and optimizing collaborations between team members.

Team Governance Model Interactions and Knowledge Translation Exchange (KTE) Activities with Knowledge Users and Stakeholders

Core Committee: The Core Committee leads our team and assumes final responsibility for all activities. They monitor our team’s budget, timelines and deliverables. The Core Committee consists of all Project Leaders, 3 Knowledge Users and 3 trainees.

Research Management Committee: The Research Management Committee includes all team members, with the exception of the Scientific Advisory Board. The Research Management Committee organizes our scientific agenda, plans and implements Knowledge Translation activities, facilitates training and educational opportunities, develops and administers policies on authorship, and makes decisions on team membership.

Annual General Meeting: Our Annual General Meeting will be held annually and all team members, including the Scientific Advisory Board. Annual General Meetings are planned as satellites to existing national obesity conferences attended regularly by most research team members.
