IFIC is delighted to announce the formation of a new network called Early-career Researchers in Integrated Care, ERIC. Open to all early-career professionals or students around the world, ERIC aims to connect those with a strong interest in advancing integrated care from a research, practice or policy perspective. The team behind ERIC, IFIC Junior Associate Mudi Kadu and Junior Researcher Henriikka Laurola led by integrated care expert Dr Viktoria Stein, who is Director of Education and Training at IFIC, recognise that interdisciplinary knowledge exchange, collaboration, mentorship and fostering connections are key ingredients of success in the field of integrated care (IC). The network will officially launch in Utrecht at the ICIC18 conference through a series of events including a career panel of experts in the field, speed-networking, internship opportunities and skill-based workshops for young professionals and student researchers.
Are you interested in shaping the network and its activities for the upcoming year? Get involved and share your views about how we can help support you as you advance the future of integrated care in your local context and around the world.
