HRCI is delighted to welcome attendees back to an in-person Irish Health Research Forum meeting on May 11th.
This event will bring together researchers, healthcare professionals, patients, policy makers, funders, industry representatives and many more, to consider how we can instil a culture of research within the Irish health service. A portion of the morning will involve discussion groups, enabling you to share your perspectives and providing a much-needed chance for in-person chat and networking.
Due to the discussion-based nature of the event, a hybrid option is not possible. However, we will record the talks and share them afterwards.
We are charging for some categories of tickets as we are a charity & need to cover some of the event costs. However, if you believe you would have a strong contribution to make to this event but can’t access the necessary funds, please get in touch.
