IR CONNECT

Connect | Share | Learn | Build
IR Connect is a networking platform that aims to connect implementation research (IR) professionals to enable collective sharing, learning and building. It seeks to tap into the experience and aspirations of alumni of the TDR postgraduate training programme focused on IR from seven institutions across the globe. It envisions a sustainable platform for building a rich and collaborative community of practice augmented by a shared vision of a healthier future.

Building a rich community of practice

The IR Connect platform promotes active engagement amongst members through sharing of lessons learned from implementation research and exchange of resource materials related to IR. As we build this community of practice, we hope this will spark research collaborations and partnerships within and across regions.

Managing and mentoring

Identifying community leaders among the alumni who can promote continuous engagement and discussions is a significant intent of the platform. Connecting members to senior leaders and subject matter experts in the field to facilitate mentoring and continuous support consecrates the larger vision.
