Who is IRL for?
Teams of three people—two researchers and one community partner—who are interested in applying research to build healthier, more equitable communities.
- Researchers must have a terminal degree in their field (e.g., PhD) or extensive research or evaluation experience.
- Community partners must have close ties to a community of interest, must have the potential to take action on the issue themselves or have relationships with entities that can take action.
- Teams must include members from different disciplines and perspectives.
- Teams do not need to be located in the same geographic area, but must work cohesively together.
