Autumn 2023 EViR Roundtable Meeting

We are excited to announce the 2023 Autumn EViR Round Table meeting live in The Hague The Netherlands September 27th and 28th 2023. The programme is currently under development and subject to input from the spring meeting but we urge you to save the dates and prepare to join us in the Hague during this time.

We will be hosted by ZonMw, The Netherlands, that this year celebrates its 25th anniversary. In addition to the round table ZonMw will host a symposium on September 26th specifically focussed on 25 years of Implementation Science and Practice to which you are also cordially invited. This is of special interest to EViR member colleagues working in Dissemination and Implementation and we recommend asking those within your organisation to attend. We hope to meet you in good health in September in the Netherlands: Welkom!
