Overview and programme

Join us at this year’s Link Officers’ Annual Meeting (LOAM). This popular annual event is a unique opportunity for Partners to share best practice, discuss emerging sector issues and to learn from one another. The theme this year is collaboration, with sessions from across the network on practice and systems change through a variety of collaborative activities between individuals and organisations both nationally and locally.

There will also be opportunities to:

  • Attend a support session for new and experienced Link Officers, an invaluable session if you are new in the role. Account Managers will recommend how best to promote RiP within your organisation and give advice on the Link Officer role.
  • Hear more about a brand new digital channel to support communications across the Research in Practice Link Officer network.
  • Share best practice with other Link Officers from across the Partnership network in regional sessions.

About the Link Officers’ Annual Meeting

Link Officers are the lynchpin between Research in Practice and a Partner organisation. They focus on embedding learning and development within their organisation and championing evidence-informed practice.

The Link Officers’ Annual Meeting (LOAM) brings together Link Officers from across the network. This popular annual event is a unique opportunity for Partners to share best practice, discuss emerging sector issues and to learn from one another.

LOAM is a residential event and attendance (including overnight accommodation and catering) is included in organisational membership to Research in Practice.
