Are you tackling complex real-world problems? Interested in learning about and sharing the best methodologies in: Groups dealing with complex problems using research integration and implementation
We want to overcome the fragmented nature of these communities by bringing together everyone whose research interests include:
  • understanding problems as systems
  • combining knowledge from various disciplines and practice areas
  • dealing with unknowns to reduce risk, unpleasant surprises and adverse unintended consequences
  • helping research teams collaborate more effectively
  • implementing evidence in improved policy and practice.
Do you have a case study that demonstrates these methods in action? Have you developed new methods or useful explanatory concepts? Have you built a successful education program? Do you have evidence about overcoming institutional barriers? If so, join us! This conference is different from the norm and we think we can explain what we are trying to achieve most effectively in the short (3.5 minute) video on the conference aims and background in the right hand column. We are not just different in what we are trying to do, but also in how we are organising the conference. For example, there are three options for participating and all presentations – invited and submitted – will be online to give the conference the widest possible reach. We have a lot planned and the links below will fill you in on what’s available. Showcase your work and see what’s happening around the world: More than 200 digital posters have been submitted and most of them are now available for viewing and comment. You can still submit your past achievements and current work using digital posters. We will not be able to review these submissions before the conference, but we will include those accepted in the data commons that the conference will produce.
Hear from leading experts:
  • 16 plenary talks on transdisciplinarity, systems thinking, implementation, unknowns, case studies and more…
  • Plenary panel on education for research integration and implementation.
  • Plenary debate on whether we need a new discipline.
