Have you been to any of RAID’s events? What do YOU think RAID should be doing? Are we perfect and don’t need to change? Or do you think there are things we could be doing better?
 
RAID is currently seeking feedback from its members and stakeholders to better understand if its current activities are meeting expectations for networking and capacity building, and if there are areas to further improve how and what RAID delivers.
 
Feedback is sought from:
- Early to mid-career researchers (EMCRs)
- People responsible for (either directly or indirectly) employing, supervising or mentoring EMCRs

If you don’t fit into either of these categories and you would like to let us know your thoughts, please feel free to complete the survey.
 
There are two sections to the survey:
1 - Networking Events
2 - Capacity Building Events
 
The short survey will take you 10 mins. The poll will remain open until COB Friday, 16 June 2017.
