The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) has issued a request for information on its strategic plan for 2021-2025. NIDA values input from psychological scientists and others who can offer meaningful insight into how NIDA can develop a vision for how to execute its mission, which is to advance science on the causes and consequences of drug use and addiction and to apply that knowledge to improve individual and public health.
NIDA has released a draft outline of its 2021-2025 strategic plan. This outline includes cross-cutting research topics and research areas of interest, overarching research goals and actions, and a brief description of how NIDA plans to properly and responsibly utilize public funds.
NIDA requests your feedback on topics such as:
- Modifications of the research goals and actions mentioned in the outline
- Modifications of the cross-cutting research topics mentioned in the outline
- Other topics related to developing the strategic plan
- Methods to ensure effective dissemination and implementation of the strategic plan
As a psychological scientist, this is a critical opportunity to make your voice heard at one of the world’s top funders of research psychology. APS recommends that you consider offering comments for NIDA’s consideration.
Comments should be submitted via email to: NIDAStrategicPlan@nida.nih.gov. NIDA will accept feedback through August 7, 2020.
