Brief Description of the Collaboratory :


From the CIAR February 2003 newsletter:
CIAR has formed a New Investigators Network (NIN) to develop a long-term group of young research leaders in the area of human development, and to promote research based on the National Longitudinal Survey of Children and Youth (NLSCY). Leadership for the project is being provided by Dr. Douglas Willms, Fellow of the CIAR Human Development Program and Director of the University of New Brunswick's Canadian Research Institute for Social Policy (CRISP). The core group of 20 members was selected by the NIN Advisory Committee (Dr. Willms, Dr. Richard Tremblay and Dr. Clyde Hertzman). Members are diverse both in their range of experience (from new graduate students to those who are almost a decade past their doctorate) and in their research strengths (methodology, statistics, and policy, among others). The 20 core NIN members will be grouped into teams, based on common interests. Each team will be led by a senior investigator. They will receive funding to attend a three-day conference in Quebec City in May 2003. All NIN members will have access to the private collaborative website, which was launched in January 2003.
