Participate in an Implementation Science Masterclass

Implementation science masterclass

By investing in the training and scientific capacity of individuals and institutions in low- and middle-income countries (LMICs), not only is a research culture fostered and local ownership of research solidified, but it also enhances the development of locally-appropriate solutions, thus increasing the likelihood of sustained impact. While recognising that efforts to bolster research capacity in LMICs must expand both at the individual and systems level, at C/Can we aim to foster the development of implementation science skills within our city local stakeholders to leverage their understanding of unique cultural and contextual factors in advancing cancer care health systems strengthening.

Thus, C/Can is pleased to announce an exciting opportunity in collaboration with the University of Melbourne. A 2-day masterclass offering an introduction to the field of implementation science will be offered online across C/Can’s network of cities. Two seatings will be offered to accommodate timezone across the Asia, Europe, Africa and Latin America regions.

Applications are closed

Candidates must be engaged with the C/Can initiative in their city. We encourage early submissions, as they will be reviewed on a rolling basis. 

The masterclass is part of C/Can’s commitment to fostering the development of implementation science skills as part of our new research initiative. Investing in the training and scientific capacity of individuals and institutions in LMICs enhances the progression of locally-led solutions and increases the likelihood of sustained impact.
