Researcher Exchange

Researcher Exchange with Network Member Organisations

The Exchange Program intends to provide a two-way learning opportunity for ALIVE researchers to be placed for a short or medium-term with service provider members of the Implementation and Translation Network (ITN). The purpose is for researchers to gain on the ground experience of the service provider sector, and knowledge of how research is conducted and used in practice or policy settings. The is intended for all members of the ALIVE Next Generation Researcher Network (NGRN) and the Lived Experience Research Collective, whether they are involved in research through universities and/or projects or evaluation work in the community, government, public sector or other organisations working in mental health research and policy development.

ITN member organisations will provide projects requiring research support, and members of the NGRN and Lived-Experience Research Collective will contact ITN leads to be appropriately matched with an organisation.
