Welcome to the 4th Implementation Science School
This page will prepare you for the program that runs from 29 November to 10 December. Across the whole program, each trainee will engage with:
- 19 lectures via asynchronous online learning
- Background reading
- 7x Plenary sessions
- 6x Group Sessions (A or B)
Useful resources recommend during the School
There are very useful links and resources recommended during the plenary sessions at ISS4, which you can find here. Some of them are already in our e-Hub at “tookit page”. Also please check out other important publications.

Preparatory work before the start date
We have pre-recorded lectures on many topics related to implementation science. These topics will be the key ones discussed during the live sessions during the program, so we encourage you to watch the relevant videos before each similarly named session. You can watch the videos here. In addition, you will find related publications/resources here.
Prepare a short presentation (less than 5 minutes) to introduce your project/abstract to your team members. The presentations will be delivered in Group Session 1 (A or B). This can be oral only or with slides.
