Event Objectives

HDR UK is now over halfway through its first quinquennium (5-year funding period), and preparations for our quinquennial review by our core funders are underway. Through a series of collaborative meetings, we are coming together as a national research institute, crossing disciplines and organisations to co-develop an innovative vision for the second quinquennium of HDR UK (2023-2028).

In the first of our Frontiers meetings on 26 April 2021, we will:

  1. Share current “blue sky” visions for the second quinquennium across each of the HDR UK Core themes (Applied Analytics, Phenomics, Understanding Causes of Disease, Public Health, Better Care, Clinical Trials, Training, Infrastructure, International)
  2. Refine our ideas and identify additional opportunities for HDR UK to act as a world-leading, innovator of the future.
  3. Consider and align around cross-cutting requirements to enable high-quality research across our Core Themes.

This workshop is open to all members of the HDR community, as well as current and future partners, and will be of particular interest to those involved in the following areas:

  • Improving public health
  • Clinical trials
  • Applied analytics
  • Human phenome
  • Better care
  • Training
  • Infrastructure
  • Understanding causes of diseases
