At the midpoint of its implementation, NORA continues to evolve and thrive. Those dedicated to NORA and occupational safety and health have produced: 1. An enthusiastic and productive, broad-based NORA Liaison Committee. 2. Successful efforts of 20 NORA Teams, including outreach, conferences and symposia, and the production of research agendas. 3. A successful grant process that produced record-breaking funding for targeted occupational safety and health research in Fiscal Years 1998, 1999, 2000, and 2001. 4. Three surveys (FY96, FY98, FY00) of Federal occupational safety and health research investment, showing increases in Federal partner funding in occupational safety and health in general, and NORA in particular. 5. Evidence that a national research agenda was, and continues to be, needed and that NORA research priority areas were well chosen with broad input and growing support. 6. Recognition that NORA is a model for public-private partnerships and is being widely used by other organizations in similar planning efforts. 7. The first broad-based network of public and private partnerships in occupational safety and health.
