What is the European Implementation Collaborative?
The European Implementation Collaborative (EIC) aims to improve the life of children, youth, adults, and families in Europe through effective evidence-informed implementation of evidence-informed human services. Our objectives are to:
- Promote greater awareness and understanding of implementation science and practice within and across European welfare and human service systems.
- Create an infrastructure for cross-European exchange of the ‘know what’, ‘know why’, and ‘know how’ of implementation practice and science.
- Identify and develop a common Europe-specific knowledge base and language on implementation in order to define the specific contextual factors of the European human service delivery systems that encompass implementation work in European countries.
- Link the individuals and groups working in this area in Europe back to the growing global community of implementation science and practice and contribute a European perspective to the wider development of the field.
