Tripartite Agreement - Mentorship Workshop

Event details

Date and time: 
Thursday, 23 May 2013 - 9:00am to Friday, 24 May 2013 - 1:30pm

NHMRC in conjunction with the Canadian Institutes of Health Research (CIHR) and the Health Research Council of New Zealand (HRC) held a Tripartite Agreement - Mentorship Workshop on Thursday 23 and Friday 24 May in Melbourne.

The Mentorship Workshop discussed:

  • Fostering appropriate linkages with mentors with the goal of developing a cadre of highly qualified Indigenous researchers; and
  • Supporting joint capacity building specifically for Indigenous post-doctoral scholars and fellows.

The Mentorship Workshop provided opportunities for identifying challenges facing emerging Indigenous researchers, compared innovative mentoring practices developed worldwide, and enabled the sharing of experiences and best practices for defining the best approaches to mentoring the next generation of Indigenous health researchers.

Each country nominated ten Indigenous researchers to attend which included both established mentors and promising new investigators or emerging leaders.

Presentations were recorded and will be made available on the NHMRC website. The workshop outcomes will inform the development of a NHMRC capacity building forum to be held later in 2013.
