In 2011, the Centre for Effective Services established the Implementation Network of Ireland and Northern Ireland. Its overarching purpose is to create opportunities to promote and share learning about effective implementation of policy and practice within and across health, education and social care sectors in Ireland and Northern Ireland and internationally.
The Implementation Network of Ireland and Northern Ireland currently has ninety participants (policy makers, service providers, practitioners and researchers) from Ireland and Northern Ireland. The Network meets twice a year to share learning and research about effective implementation.
A Steering Group, established in 2012, advises on the future development of the Network and considers structures and mechanisms for developing and sustaining it. Membership of the Steering Group reflects the overall make-up of the Implementation Network.
