STRIDE Center researchers work with stakeholders such as research directors, managers, potential adopters (users) and technical experts to find the most appropriate methods for conducting research and delivering research results. Stakeholders ensure research is addressing established real-world problems, guide the development of new products and solutions, and champion the adoption and implementation of these solutions. Stakeholders may work at the early stages of a project design, at the end stage of adoption, or throughout the entire life of the project.
