Covid has had an impact on almost every aspect of life and health research is no exception. On top of Covid, the Irish health service was faced with an additional crisis in the form of the recent cyber-attack. Despite the enormous challenges caused, these crises have led to a period of unprecedented innovation, collaboration and an increased public appetite for health research.
At this event we reflected on the difficulties faced but also on the adaptations and innovations we have made as a community and what we can take forward in our shared mission to improve lives through research. We brought together diverse and expert perspectives for discussions on the impact of the crises on the people in research and on how we do research.
