The NIHR Clinical Research Network Reproductive Health & Childbirth National Research Champions are proud to announce our second annual NIHR CRN Reproductive Health & Childbirth Research Workforce Symposium.

A draft programme of events has been prepared that we hope will bring together the multi-disciplinary team with plenty of opportunity to network and share ideas. Share with each other innovative approaches to research delivery and explore collaborative ideas to developing a sustainable workforce. Learn about the journeys of those delivering clinical research to ensure ongoing success.


Registration is open to delegates working within the reproductive health and childbirth speciality. We are keen to encourage those already working in clinical research delivery, clinical staff supporting research in their current role and those considering a clinical research role.

We expect a great deal of interest in this symposium so please register as soon as possible. Registration does not guarantee a place. We will endeavour to be as fair as possible in allocating places, aiming for a range of experience and geographical spread. Registration will close on 31 January 2020.
