NIOSH, in partnership with the Center for Health, Work & Environment at the Colorado School of Public Health, is pleased to announce a 2017 conference, Expanding Research Partnerships: State of the Science, in Aurora, Colorado. The conference goals are to:

  1. Enhance and expand intramural and extramural partnership in occupational safety and health research
  2. Launch the 3rd decade of the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA)

The conference will include plenary presentations, breakout sessions, poster sessions, and topic tables. We invite you to submit an abstract to present your work at this meeting.

The conference content is not limited to any specific field of work, and all scientific disciplines are invited to submit abstracts. There will also be a plenary session devoted to early career scientists. An early career scientist is defined as someone who has completed a graduate program within the last five years, and has a masters, doctorate, medical, or law degree.
