SPHeRE Network

The SPHeRE Network is Ireland’s largest population and health services research network connecting individuals working in research, policy and practice. We aim to facilitate opportunities for research activities which support the information needs of policy makers and health service providers. Through events and activities we proactively connect the individuals and organisations who produce and use health services research.
