  • Successful efforts of 20 NORA teams, including outreach; conferences and symposia; and production of white papers, documents, and journal articles.
  • The participation of a large number of federal agencies in NORA activities.
  • A successful grants process which has produced record-breaking funding for targeted occupational safety and health research in Fiscal Years 1998, 1999, and 2000.
  • Two surveys (in Fiscal Years 1996 and 1998) of federal occupational safety and health research investment.
  • Evidence that a national research agenda was, and continues to be, needed and thatNORA research priority areas were well chosen.
  • Recognition that NORA continues to be used as a model for public-private partnerships and is being widely used by other organizations in similar planning efforts.
  • For the first time, a broad-based network of public and private partnerships in occupational safety and health.
