In order to further its charitable aims, the trust actively seeks to develop a network of Research Associations with interested parties who wish to further the aims and objectives of the trust and participate in research studies and projects. A voluntary position with no attached commitments, a Research Associate may be any person, business or institution that applies to and is accepted by the Trust to collaborate in research studies and projects. The SRT will play a vital role in the co-ordination of projects undertaken by its Research Associates, and enable collaborations with other recognised SRT Research Associates through its administrative channels.
