  • Develop valid study metrics for the description of illness and the measurement of outcomes, and harmonize data elements across clinical trials

  • Support local research education and mentorship activities through international exchanges and other co-operative educational activities

  • Facilitate the establishment of new national or regional investigator-led clinical trials groups in critical care
