Training, Networking, and Communication Working Group

We aim to establish a virtual center-of-excellence to promote training, networking, and communication throughout the GP2 project.

Training is a key element of GP2, and we will develop resources and opportunities to share best practice and learning internationally across a range of existing analytic methods, as well as developing or applying new methods from other fields. GP2 training can be accessed here.

We also aim to support the GP2 network to promote the flow of research opportunities, ideas and data in all directions across, as well as disseminate knowledge in wide and impactful ways across the full spectrum of stakeholders, including the research community, funders, patients, and the public.
