Expanding Research Partnerships Webinar Series
The Expanding Research Partnerships Webinar Series provides a forum to continue the learning and discussions on NIOSH research and partnerships from the 2017 Expanding Research Partnerships: State of the Science Conference. For a look back at the conference, click here.
This new webinar series features presentations of intramural (internal) and extramural (grant-funded) research within the NIOSH Program Portfolio. The 2018 series will kick off with three webinars scheduled on February 14, May 16, and November 14. They will all take place from 12:00 p.m. – 1:00 p.m., ET. You will also be able to access the webinar recordings for on-demand viewing on this webpage a few weeks after the webinar.
The series aims to inform and engage webinar attendees on NIOSH-funded intramural and extramural research to:
- Increase awareness of the topic areas being addressed by NIOSH-funded research and knowledge of areas where new research partnerships can be developed.
- Enhance and expand intramural and extramural partnership in occupational safety and health research.
