Welcome! Thank you for providing input to ASHRAE's 2010-2015 Research Strategic Plan.
Please read these instructions before starting.
Since its inception, ASHRAE has conducted research to advance the arts and sciences of HVAC&R and allied disciplines for the benefit of the general public. Today, ASHRAE funds over $2 million in research annually.
Research priorities are guided by ASHRAE's Research Strategic Plan, developed every 5 years by the Research Advisory Panel (RAP) with broad input from the membership. This survey is one of the early mechanisms RAP is using to gather that input. The Plan currently being developed looks forward to research priorities for 2010 through 2015. This survey asks for your thoughtful input on strategic research needs for that period.
The survey includes 22 questions and will take about 10 to 20 minutes to complete, depending on whether you choose to identify specific strategic research goals. Your responses will be kept confidential. At no time will any information you provide be identified with you.
A summary report of the survey results will be available later on the ASHRAE website.
We look forward to your input and thank you for your time.
Jeffrey D. Spitler, Ph.D.
