Our conference is a chance for academics and regional stakeholders to come together to discuss key questions and identify gaps in research. Together, we will identify the issues, make connections and start to develop solutions.
The morning programme showcases guest speakers and outcomes from funded research projects, and the afternoon programme offers workshops on best practice in co-production and public and patient involvement in research. You’ll have the opportunity to network with experts and peers from your field and get valuable insights from their experiences. We look forward to seeing you there!
