Registration now open for the MULTI-ACT project event on 12 November: “Does your research impact society responsibly?”

17-10-2019

Registration is now open for the MULTI-ACT project-dedicated event, “Does your research impact society responsibly? Design your sustainable multi-stakeholder initiative using MULTI-ACT”, to be held on 12 November in Brussels, Belgium. EBC is heavily involved in the MULTI-ACT project and looks forward to hosting the event on the day.

The draft agenda is available here.

Please register to attend the event here.

The EU-funded MULTI-ACT project, which began in May 2018, aims to increase the impact of health research on people with brain diseases by creating and implementing a new model allowing for the effective cooperation of all relevant stakeholders.

After one and a half years of work, a number of work packages have completed their work and will have plenty to present on the day. The focus of the event will be the following:

• A new governance criterion allowing effective cooperation of all relevant stakeholders in multi-stakeholder research initiatives and transformative governance;

• Innovative guidelines for effective patient engagement across the health research and innovation path;

• A new tool for the assessment of the research impact across different dimensions including excellence, efficacy, social, economic and patient reported dimension and to better tie the research results to the objectives of the initiative.

The official project video will also debut on the day and a networking lunch will follow immediately after the event.

For further information on the project, please visit the MULTI-ACT website.
