Ensuring Value in Research (EViR)

Funders' Collaboration and Development Forum

The EViR Forum is an active community of members and interested funders. We aim to maintain an active programme of face to face meetings at least 1-2 times a year. Members also commit to continue to engage in the work of the Forum outside of the meetings. Other funders are also encouraged to participate.

Activity might include attending at lease meetings in person or via remote access, or leading/participating in a shared learning and development workstream.

Forum meetings so far include:

  • London, UK
  • The Hague, Netherlands
  • Washington DC, USA
  • Cardiff, UK
  • Canberra, Australia


Future scheduled meetings include:

  • 28-29 March 2019 - Dublin, Ireland (hosted by Health Research Board)
  • TBC November 2019 - Washington DC (hosted by PCORI)
