NHS NRS Children’s Research Network (formerly ScotCRN) is hosting the prestigious International Children’s Advisory Networks (iCAN) Summit at Edinburgh University in July 2018. This is in partnership with GenerationR – NIHR England.

The Summit brings together children and young people who are patients or have an interest in medical research from 7 countries and 14 US states who are members of Young Persons Advocacy groups.  The Key Note addresses, workshops, and activities of the week centre around Drug Development, Medical Devices and Technology, Rare Diseases, Active Involvement of Children and Patients and Music and Sport as medical interventions.

This is an ideal opportunity for your company to work with 150 international ‘Research Aware’ young people, obtaining their opinions on your protocols, medical devices, patient and public materials.   We have a range of sponsorship packages ranging from 5k to 100k.

If you would like to receive more information about the Summit and how you can attend and access the opinions of the iCAN membership please contact Pamela Dicks p.dicks@abdn.ac.uk
