As Dissemination and Implementation (D&I) Interest Group, we aim to dig deeper into the types of activities that funders carry out in this area and the factors that influence their success. The topic of this D&I Interest group meeting is to discuss opportunities for collaboration between Funders and National networks.
Implementation is a growing field and it is increasingly seen as a recognized profession. Barbara van der Linden from ZonMw will share some examples of what we are working on together with the Dutch NIC (Netherlands Implementation Collaborative), and also elaborate on the EIC (European Implementation Collaborative) and its activities in relation to national networks.
The next EViR Round Table Meeting will take place on 27&28 October 2022 and we hope you can join us virtually as the perspectives of all our members are so valuable.

We are very delighted to share a draft agenda for the next EViR Round Table on Thursday 31st March and Friday 1st April 2022. We hope you can join us in the next EViR meeting where members will be able to learn and share best practice as well as establish the EViR programme with direct impact on the future of the EViR activities and outputs.
Purpose of Session: To provide a brief summary of the scope and purpose of the NIHR Research on Research (including the current portfolio of work conducted by the team under thematic areas of activity) and recent developments to enhance and engage with the RoR community (the RoR registry and hub).
Funding organisations are constantly looking into strengthening their approach to EDI (Equality, Diversity and Inclusion). Both funders and research organisations are committed to EDI broadly and developing and maintaining a healthy research culture more generally, tackling disadvantage and discrimination. Mentoring schemes provide the power to accelerate self-development and career progression, among other benefits.
