Early career researchers, practitioners and students were given a sneak preview of a new network aimed at supporting their journey in the Integrated Care field.
About 20 participants from around the world joined the inaugural meeting of the Early-career Researchers in Integrated Care (ERIC). The ‘virtual Town Hall’ meeting was held on March 8, ahead of its official launch at the ICIC18 conference in Utrecht, The Netherlands. Hosted by Dr Viktoria Stein, IFIC’s Director of Education, ERIC President and IFIC Junior Associate Mudi Kadu, and Junior Researcher Henriikka Laurola, student researchers and young professionals were encouraged to share ideas on the network’s activities for the upcoming year. The Town Hall meeting was meant to open a dialogue on how ERIC can support them in advancing the future of integrated care in their local contexts and around the world.
