ACTA ran two workshops on 28 and 30 September 2021 titled “Research Prioritisation Uncovered”, which showcased the key outcomes from the ACTA Research Prioritisation and the Impact and Implementation of Clinical Trial Networks Reference Groups.
The purpose of these workshops was to support clinicians, researchers, and funders interested in learning more about research prioritisation. Speakers included Prof Paul Scuffham, Prof Rachael Morton, A/Prof Haitham Tuffaha, Prof Paul Hansen, Prof Carmel Hawley and Greg Mullins.
