This also applies to conducting research with people with intellectual disabilities, also known as ‘Inclusive research’. But how does inclusive research with people with intellectual disabilities work? During the symposium 'Inclusief onderzoek in 't eggie’, the reality of working in an inclusive research team will be shared. Also experiences and challenges in practice will be discussed.The academic collaborative ‘Sterker op eigen benen’ invites you to this free symposium, which will be held on 14 January from 09.45-13.30 hours. After the symposium, the PhD defense of Tessa Frankena will follow, researcher at 'Geneeskunde voor mensen met een verstandelijke beperking’ of the Department of Primary and Community Care, and Medical Services Coordinator at Het Dorp, Siza.
