Research and Development
The NICE Research and Development (R&D) team is part of the Centre for Health Technology Evaluation (CHTE) at NICE. One of the primary roles of the NICE R&D team is to facilitate the prioritisation of research using internal mechanisms and liaise with external partners to take up the research. Topics for research projects are prioritised through two internal mechanisms; 1) through NICE's Research Recommendations database and 2) the Internal Research Advisory Group (IRAG).
A key responsibility of the R&D Team is NICE's Citizens Council, a panel of 30 members of the public that largely reflect the demographic characteristics of the UK who provide NICE with a public perspective on overarching moral and ethical issues that NICE has to take account of when producing guidance.
