The São Paulo Research Foundation (FAPESP) in collaboration with the Global Alliance for Chronic Diseases (GACD) will be holding a 5-day implementation science school in Campinas, Brazil from 6-10, November 2018.

According to GACD, implementation science is commonly defined as the study of methods and strategies to promote the uptake of interventions that have proven effective into routine practice, with the aim of improving population health. Implementation science, therefore, examines what works, for whom and under what circumstances, and how interventions can be adapted and scaled up in ways that are accessible and equitable.

The Implementation Science Research Training School will be facilitated by some of the field’s most prominent global experts in implementation science and aims to:

  • Introduce early- and mid-career researchers to the field of dissemination and implementation science.

  • Inform, through practitioners, policymakers and researchers, how to study and implement research findings into policy and practice.

  • Expand on this field of science with regards to the use of theoretical models, study design measurement.

  • Illustrate ways of collaborating and networking more globally.

  • Showcase examples of implementation research and the uptake of research findings into policy and practice.

The Faculty will include:

Professor Brian Oldenburg – University of Melbourne, Australia & Head, WHO Collaborating Centre on Implementation Research for Prevention & Control of NCDs.

Professor Fernando Cendes – University of Campinas and BRAINN (Brazilian Institute of Neuroscience and Neurotechnology), SP, Brazil

Dr Ed Gregg – US Centers for Disease Control, USA.

Professor Li Li Min – Universidade de Campinas, Brazil.

Professor Paulo Saldiva – University of São Paulo, Brazil.

Professor Pilvikki Absetz – University of East Finland, Finland.

Dr Rachel Sturke – Fogarty International Center, National Institutes of Health, USA.

Associate Professor Rodrigo Moreno-Serra – University of York, UK.

Dr Sailesh Mohan – Public Health Foundation of India, India.

Professor Victor Wünsch Filho – Public Health School, University of São Paulo, SP, Brazil.

Dr Vilma Irazola – Instituto de Efectividad Clinica y Sanitaria (IECS), Argentina & Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health, USA

A total of approximately 70 participants (35 from Brazil, 35 from other countries) will be accepted in the School.

Eligible participants will mainly include early- and mid-career researchers who have completed and/or are undertaking postgraduate coursework/researchers studies related to one of the health sciences or public health (or another relevant field). PhDs graduated in the last 3 years and other relevant graduates with up to 5 years of relevant research experience are also encouraged to apply.

Applications will be reviewed by the event organisers and successful applicants will have the costs of their travel and accommodation over the course of the training provided.

Applications will be received up to July 27, 2018.
