National Indigenous Research(er) Capacity Building Network
We aim to support and grow the next generation of Indigenous researchers working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health.
The National Indigenous Research(er) Capacity Building Network (IRNet) is about co-creating opportunities to connect research and researchers to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia. It aims to support the connection and coordination of research training, translation, methodological development and project collaboration across AHRA, and includes training and support to develop skills in knowledge translation and exchange, as well as practical experience in the implementation of research evidence in the real-world context of health services and communities.
IRNet's three priorities are to:
- Progress and strengthen a robust Indigenous Research(er) Network
- Invest and develop the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander workforce
- Enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research(er) capabilities.
National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research Showcase
On July 27 and 28 the University of Sydney and Sydney Health Partners will host the second annual National Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Health Research Showcase.
The Showcase will bring together Australia’s leading thinkers on Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health, while spotlighting the work of our most promising Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander researchers.
The highlights of both conference days will be abstract presentations covering all areas of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health research. Wherever you are in your career, we encourage you to submit your research.
Abstract submissions are now open and close COB Friday 30th April.
Travel prizes will be awarded to assist some interstate presenters. In the event that COVID-19 restrictions mean the live component of the Showcase cannot proceed, presenters will be asked to pre-record their presentations .
