Learn more and register
Researchers engaging in innovative work often face challenges identifying partnerships beyond traditional and familiar collaborators. However, by thinking more broadly, there is great potential to add value to their study and help scale implementation of research findings. This webinar will feature the framework that the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation (RWJF), in collaboration with Oliver Wyman, has developed to help researchers identify effective and strategic partnerships. Presenters will guide researchers in ways they can engage individuals and organizations to achieve greater impact.
