Networking Events and Meetings

Early Career Meet-Up
Batch, 75 Victoria St, Toronto, ON M5C 2B1, Canada
The goal of this meet-up is for early career implementation professionals to network, get to know one another, and potentially find collaborative partners in the implementation work we do. This event has historically taken place before the conference begins and allows for you to network early and create more meaningful connections to build on as the conference proceeds.

Implementation in Education—Informal Discussion
Sheraton Hall A
The goal of this informal gathering is to connect with others who are interested in applying implementation science to educational systems and practice change to improve outcomes for children and youth. All are welcome to join this discussion.
Promoting and Sustaining Implementation Science in Challenging Political Environments
Sheraton Hall C
Motivated by experiences and concerns shared through the Child and Family Evidence Based Practice Consortium, this discussion hour provides opportunity to identify challenges and generate creative strategies to promote and sustain implementation science in challenging and sometimes adversarial political environments. We will discuss collaborative, strengths-based approaches to advance the field in times of decreasing resources and support for scientific inquiry and higher education.
Implementation Science Funding Opportunities and Strategies at the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHBLI) and NIH
Sheraton Hall B
Knowledge of National Institutes of Health (NIH) research opportunities, mechanisms, and processes are critical skills for new and established researchers seeking to fund implementation science. An interactive discussion on National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute (NHLBI) and NIH grant mechanisms, strategies, and recent grant policy updates will prepare applicants for research grant reviews. Time sensitive opportunities for translation research, implementation science, global health and health inequities at NHLBI will be highlighted.
