Purpose of Research Interest Groups (RIGs)
RIGs foster the thoughtful exchange of ideas within the global multi-disciplinary community of the ORS by providing the opportunity to engage in informative, transformative, and live discussion with colleagues in a specific area of musculoskeletal research, whether basic, applied, clinical, and/or orthopaedic. To explore content that is complementary or different to the ORS Annual Meeting, RIGs are encouraged to focus on unique approaches, methodologies, diseases, or connections that inspire brainstorming across our multi-disciplinary groups.
What is expected from the organizers of RIGs:
- A written plan for the content, focus, and target audience of the RIG
- Names of all organizers and speakers
- Identification of preferred date / time of the proposed RIG
- A post-RIG report on the attendance, its scientific relevance, and summary of next steps (if any)
What organizers of RIGs can expect from ORS:
- A review of the content / focus of the proposed RIG with final approval
- Support from ORS in regard to logistics and promotion
- Feedback / support after their event (if any)
- Support from ORS in regard to logistics, promotion, and evaluation
