Abstract
In April 1996, The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) and its partners unveiled the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA), a framework to guide occupational safety and health research into the next decade. Prior to NORA, there had been no national research agenda in the field of occupational safety and health (or any other field) which had captured such broad input and consensus. This unique process resulted in remarkable agreement about the top 21 research priorities. NORA also provides a means to target research in areas with the highest likelihood of reducing the still significant toll of workplace illness and injury. Twenty partnership teams were formed to assist in the implementation of the Agenda. The partnership teams have had much success in collaborating with the key stakeholders, defining research needs, and leveraging resources for research.
