EIPN Fourth Annual Forum - 24 July 2019

Thank you for your interest in the EIPN annual forum. Unfortunately, booking is now closed.

For more information about the event, please read the  programme for the day (PDF).

Peer-reviewer training is open to members of EIPN. If you're an EIPN member, you'll be asked to put forward at least two members of staff to be trained, so they can visit other services in our network as part of a peer-review team. This is so we can keep the system of peer-reviews going, and is an excellent opportunity to learn from other EIP services!

We will be in contact with members individually regarding peer-reviewer training.
