This year´s conference has already confirmed keynotes by the following excellent speakers:

Per Nilsen: Per is a Professor at Linköping University (originally an economist) and focuses mainly on the research-to-practice gap in health and welfare services. Interdisciplinarity, theory use and behaviour change are common threads in his implementation science research. In light of a historical account of the field of implementation science, Per will describe his implementation science "theory taxonomy" before discussing individual- and collective-level determinants of implementation success.

The conference will also feature a contribution by Prof Trish Greenhalgh: Trisha Greenhalgh is professor in primary health care and trained as a GP. In her research, Trisha focusses at the interface between social sciences and medicine, with strong emphasis on the organisation and delivery of health services. Today,  Trisha will describe how the NASS-CAT (non-adoption, abandonment, scale-up, spread, sustainability) framework can be extended to produce a practical tool for use by policymakers and project managers for technology supported change projects in health and social care.

Tim Rapley is a medical sociologist with an interest in social studies of medical work, research and practice. Tim undertakes detailed empirical studies that seek to understand the everyday, taken-for-granted, aspects of medical work. In his talk, Tim will focus on the recent call for people to 'tailor' their implementation efforts to the context they are working in, asking questions about the different ways that ideas of tailoring and context are being used.

Pauline Goense: Pauline has a background as an implementation researcher in the child and youth care field and obtained her PhD on this topic in 2016. She has a specific interest in implementation theories and research designs and topics such as treatment integrity and learning organizations. Right now she works as staff implementation for ZonMw (The Netherlands Organisation for Health Research and Development). ZonMw funds health research in the Netherlands and promotes the actual use of the knowledge this research produces. Pauline is co-initiator of the Netherland Implementation Collaborative (NIC) and board member of the European Implementation Collaborative (EIC) since 2015.
