Connecting research and researchers to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islanders
Lead: Professor Alex Brown
The National Indigenous Research(er) Capacity Building Network (IRNet) is an initiative of the Australian Health Research Alliance (AHRA).
IRNet is about co-creating opportunities to connect research and researchers to improve the health and wellbeing of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander people across Australia. It aims to support the connection and coordination of research training, translation, methodological development and project collaboration across AHRA.
The 3 priorities for IRNet are to:
- Progress and strengthen a robust Indigenous research(er) network
- Invest and develop the Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander Workforce
- Enhance Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander research(er) capabilities
The vision for this project is to support and grow the next generation of Indigenous researchers working in Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander health. It includes training and support to develop skills in knowledge translation and exchange, and practical experience in the implementation of research evidence in the real-world context of health services and communities.
