The webinar will bring together research funding and performing organisations across continents (EU, UK, US) to share how they support effective knowledge translation. It will also explore how this could be done better globally.

Translational research which bridges the gap between basic scientific discoveries and their real-world application, has become increasingly vital in addressing global challenges. Funders play an important role in driving impactful translational research outcomes.

How can funders support and promote cross-disciplinary translational research in a global context? What are the best practices and lessons learned from existing funding schemes and initiatives? What are the emerging opportunities and needs for translational research?


  • Dr Joni Rutter, Director of National Centre for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), NIH
  • Dr Anji Miller, Senior Business Manager, LifeArc
  • Dr Alicia Greated, Executive Director, Campaign for Science & Engineering (CaSE)
  • Dr Nikos Kastrinos, former European Commission official for Foresight in the Directorate General for Research and Innovation

The session will be chaired by Anton Ussi, Operations and Finance Director at EATRIS.

Join this webinar to exchange views and best practices with experts from international funding agencies and research organizations.
