Highlights From the NORA 2011 Symposium: Achieving Impact Through Research and Partnerships

In July, the National Occupational Research Agenda (NORA) community hosted a symposium on achieving impact through research and partnerships. Over 200 partners and stakeholders attended the symposium, which was sponsored by NIOSH and the University of Cincinnati and also recognized 15 years of NORA.

The symposium agenda was strategically designed to allow researchers and partners to quickly and effectively share their stories about their research, innovation, and partnerships for research and outreach. One of the pleasures in participating in a NORA symposium is the opportunity to see, first-hand, the passion that the NORA community brings to its mission of advancing and using new research to prevent work-related injuries, illnesses, and deaths.
The symposium featured two key note speakers; Dr. James Dearing from Keiser Permanente and Jordan Barab, U.S. Deputy Assistant Secretary of Labor for Occupational Safety and Health. Dr. Dearing’s keynote congratulated the NORA sector-based approach for bringing those together who could accomplish diffusion of research results and challenged all researchers to learn and apply the many additional lessons he outlined from the field of Diffusion of Innovations. Mr. Barab spoke of the realities of the current systems for regulation, enforcement, and compliance assistance and emphasized the necessity for new research results to point the way toward future improvements in occupational safety and health.
