What will we talk about?:
Equitable partnerships are essential for global health research. Conducting research in partnership with stakeholders (e.g. policy-makers, practitioners, organisations, patients) is a promising and popular approach to improving the implementation of research findings in policy and practice and producing research that ultimately achieves a greater impact when put into practice.
At their best, research partnerships provide a mechanism to optimize each partner’s strengths, make scientific discoveries and achieve development goals. A better understanding of research partnerships and integrated knowledge translation has implications for future partnerships and collaborative initiatives in practice. Therefore, it is important for researchers to take the initiative to ensure that equitable, mutually supportive partnerships are developed from the generation of the initial research concept through to the project delivery and final dissemination of the research outcomes.
During the workshop we will dive deeper into the principles of the equitable partnerships and provide a toolkit for creating a successful partnership, showcasing good practices from the EIT Health.
