If you have worked in implementation research, practice or policy for less than five years, then you definitely qualify. But you may also have a bit more experience - and feel young at heart. In either case, you are most welcome to the EIE2023 ECIP sessions and activities!

Pre-event Workshop:
The EuroVision of Implementation

This interactive workshop will introduce participants to the main concepts of implementation. The EuroVision of Implementation is for researchers, practitioners, policy developers and others who want to get to know implementation and the science behind it.

We will offer you a dynamic mix of brief presentations, interactive group work and facilitated discussions. After attending the EuroVision of Implementation, you will know enough about implementation terms, concepts, and tools to get the most out of your EIE2023 attendance.

May 15, 16:00 - 19:00 CET, online

Pre-event Workshop:
Creative Avenues for Impact

Professor Eva Alisic will join us to facilitate an interactive workshop at EIE2023 where you can learn about and explore different ways to communicate your research. This workshop is exclusively for EIE2023 participants in the early stages of their career and will take place the day before the conference at the EIE2023 site in Basel. The workshop creates space to get to know each other before the official start of the conference, get inspired and develop your own options for incorporating creative methods and artistic practice into your research communication. We invite you to think together with other early career professionals about the changes we want to achieve and how artistic methods can support these change processes.

June 7, 15:30 - 18:30 CET, in person (Biozentrum, room tbd)

Early Career Breakfast

All members of the ECIP Working Group are invited to join the Early Career Breakfast at EIE2023! We want to create a space for Early Careers and newcomers to the implementation community to connect and exchange with like-minded colleagues before all other attendees join the event. You will meet fellow early career researchers and practitioners, connect, build your community, exchange experience and ideas, inspire and be inspired. And you will be part of a fresh and joint beginning of the European Implementation Event 2023!

June 8, 08:00 - 09:00 CET, in person (Biozentrum Foyer)

Scavenger Hunt
- Win the EIE2023 Treasure Chest!

Team-up with your fellow ECIPs and compete for fame and fortune in the international implementation community! The EIE2023 Scavenger Hunt will be a fun challenge throughout the conference: You, together with your group, will solve creative tasks and answer question about the world of implementation. While the scavenger hunt will require you to get involved with others, be proactive, think outside your box – it will also facilitate your interaction with the conference program. All attendees who want to participate in the Scavenger Hunt will be divided into groups and you will meet your group in the morning of day 1. For planning purposes, the registration for the Scavenger Hunt is binding, so please make sure you are committed to your sign-up. If you wish to form a group with certain colleagues of yours, please reach out to us via Email and we will sign you up as a group!

During both days of EIE2023

Spotlight on!
The EIE2023 ECIP Keynote

The Early Career Implementation Professional (ECIP) Keynote gives an early career professional the opportunity to deliver a keynote at EIE2023. The ECIP Keynote is a great way to highlight the important work that early career professionals do. It is also an opportunity for the speaker to present their work in a way that captures the attention of a diverse audience and to receive feedback/questions from the implementation community. The ECIP speaker is supported throughout the process of developing and presenting their keynote.

The Early Career Implementation Professional (ECIP) Program at EIE2023 is sponsored by the EIE2023 Gold Partner Institute of Nursing Science (INS), University of Basel. The INS combines implementation science with data science to promote the integration of research findings and evidence-based interventions into clinical practice. The ultimate goal of the INS research programs is IMPACT in real-world settings. The vibrant research programs are supported by the Swiss National Science Foundation, EU Horizon Europe, EU Marie Curie and many other foundations and national organizations.
