Strategic Overview

WE-SPARK’s Next 5 Years (2025-2030)

WE-SPARK is currently undergoing a strategic planning process focused on identifying its next steps as an institute and creating a roadmap for the future of regional health research.  WE-SPARK has engaged Stiletto: Make a Point, a strategic planning and market research consultant to lead the stakeholder engagement and ensure the results of this survey stay confidential, remain anonymous, and presented in consolidated form.
