Education, Research and Innovation Committee (ERIC).

The Education, Research and Innovation Committee is responsible both for helping to direct the high-level approach of the Education & Innovation Teams for healthcare professionals, along with reviewing the developments, packages and courses incorporated within that.

The Committee is chaired by Deputy Postgraduate Dean David Eadington and composed of a range of individual who are involved in the delivery of education across the region. The group has recently reviewed key developments and achievements during the previous 12 months and set future objectives for the upcoming year.

A primary function of the Committee is to support requests from organisations and individuals that are associated with education, research and innovation interventions that aim to enhance workforce training and improve patient safety. Requests are received via an agreed bidding form to the ERIC committee. There are two rounds each year (funding permitting) one closing 15 June and the other 15 November.
