Expanding Research Partnerships

ERP logo with subheading

Welcome to Expanding Research Partnerships (ERP) at NIOSH. ERP was developed to connect research and practice communities through webinars, conferences, and other interactive forums that promote the exchange of ideas and best practices about new and emerging issues in occupational safety and health (OSH). We invite you to join us as we explore pressing issues in OSH.

Expanding Research Partnerships Webinar Series

The Expanding Research Partnerships Webinar Series connects researchers and practitioners from different disciplines to promote impactful partnerships and discuss innovative approaches to the challenges and opportunities in OSH.

Recent ERP webinars have included presentations on a range of topics including new and emerging risks and opportunities in the future of work, the aging worker and well-being, and developing partnerships during a pandemic.

ERP webinars are open to the public and held three times each year.  To learn about upcoming webinars and register, please click here.

Expanding Research Partnerships Conference Series

Since 2013, NIOSH has organized biennial meetings of extramural and intramural research communities to discuss current topics, share best practices, and explore innovative solutions to challenges and opportunities in OSH training and research.  These meetings are typically hosted by one of the NIOSH extramural centers.

The State of the Science conference in 2017 helped launched the third decade of NORA and the ERP webinar series. Hear NIOSH scientists and researcher grantees discuss their work in these videos that communicate the relevance and impact of NIOSH-funded research.

Information on the next conference, planned for March 2022, will be posted here when it is available.
