Representatives from the ACRC partner organizations collectively identified common metrics. The organizations were interested in identifying the best common metrics to be used in reporting and accountability; and for showcasing and illustrating productivity of clinical health research within their organizations. These metrics are to be transparent, useful and user-friendly, and can address the questions of multiple stakeholders (directors, government, industry, researchers). In addition, other metrics were proposed but not prioritized.
