2023 NIDILRR Stakeholder Match-Making Sessions

 

About the NIDILRR Stakeholder Match-Making Initiative

The Administration for Community Living’s (ACL) National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is sponsoring its second year of virtual match-making sessions for ACL/NIDILRR stakeholders to connect with each other to share information, discuss common research interests, and ultimately find partners for research collaboration.

From October – November 2023, NIDILRR stakeholders will sign up for sessions based on similar research interests and will be provided with a virtual Zoom room to meet and talk. Each session will consist of one or more presenters and participants. Based on the discussion, stakeholders may capture information about each other and connect individually with each other to partner with after the session.

Please note, ACL/NIDILRR is sponsoring the sessions but will not be participating in the sessions in order to maintain integrity in future grant processes such as peer review and is not endorsing any content discussed.

Presenter and Participant Roles

Before signing up for a session, please review the information below regarding roles for presenters and participants:

  • Presenters are stakeholders who are seeking partnership and collaboration for research purpose or stakeholders who have a research question or a specific research topic idea and want to make a pitch to the researchers. During each session presenters are asked to briefly share information about their organization and their research interest and pose questions to matched stakeholders. Presenters will be responsible for “moderating” the sessions and leading the discussion.
  • Participants are stakeholders who have similar research interests and who will listen during the session, provide feedback and respond to questions, and ask their own questions. 

Register for a Session

If you are interested in joining a stakeholder match-making session as a participant, please complete the Zoom registration for the session(s) you would like to attend, by Wednesday, October 25, 2023. Spots are limited. Sessions will be recorded for administrative purposes only and will not be shared.

Sessions are designed to be small to foster discussion and collaboration, so we ask that you please only register if you plan on attending the session. For each session you will find the session topic, presenter(s), date and time, and registration link below.
