Meet the Programme Planning Group for GIC 2019

The biennial Global Implementation Conference (GIC) was launched in 2011 with a focus on “What is Implementation?”. GIC 2013 then moved from the “What” to the “How” of implementation with conference sessions related to the process and tools used to implement effectively in community-based settings. GIC 2015 then expanded this focus further by engaging presenters and delegates in a discussion about the impact of implementation at scale. GIC 2017 continued to expand its focus on innovative implementation topics by centering the conference theme on engaging systems in the science, practice, and policy of effective and sustainable implementation.

Please join us in 2019 for an opportunity to learn, share, network and socialize with others who are passionate about implementation science, practice, and policy!

Meet the Programme Planning Group for GIC 2019

The Programme Planning Group for the 2019 Global Implementation Conference has been convened, by Melissa Van Dyke and Fiona Mitchell, to include people with a diverse range of perspectives and experiences relating to implementation practice, policy implementation and implementation research from across the globe. The Programme Planning Group began work in earnest back in September 2018, with a commitment to developing a programme with appeal to global interests. In particular, they are keen to create a forum for thinking across boundaries to learn together about effective implementation across disciplines, across political, university, and community divides, and across higher income and lower income settings. The Programme Planning Group aim to draw together a programme for the conference that will stimulate the learning of ‘the experienced’ as well as invest in the next generation of implementation practitioners, policy makers, and implementation researchers.
