NORA symposium 2006: research makes a difference! April 18-26, 2006, Washington, DC.
Washington, DC: National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health, 2006 Apr; :1-420
It is my pleasure to welcome you to the NORA Symposium 2006: Research Makes a Difference! As in past years, the NORA Symposium 2006 will showcase the best in occupational safety and health research. Nearly 200 researchers will present their study findings, educational products, and workplace interventions. The NORA Symposium 2006 also marks an important milestone for the program and for future research in occupational safety and health. Exactly 10 years ago NORA began as an innovative public-private partnership program to stimulate occupational safety and health research for the Nation. During this time NORA team members and researchers have made much progress in advancing etiologic and interventional research, developing products and services, and fostering research partnerships. We will honor these extraordinary accomplishments and contributions at the 2006 Symposium. In addition, the NORA Symposium 2006 launches an exciting new decade of NORA research. NIOSH, after consulting with partners, has shaped the second decade of NORA around research priorities to be developed by eight sector research councils with a focus on bringing research into practice. Over the past five months, more than 1000 individuals and organizations have contributed to 12 town hall meetings across the U.S. or have electronically provided comments through the NORA Web page. Stakeholder involvement is the key to guiding each sector's research priorities.
