Welcome to the May edition of the ISCRR newsletter, and what a hive of activity it has been! On April 1st, we celebrated our 15th year anniversary. We took a moment to appreciate some of our achievements since our inception, including the completion of 322 research projects, co-designed across the fields of injury prevention, recovery, mental health, return to work and compensation systems.

The end of April also bought with it a sense of excitement as ISCRR’s funding renewal was announced for the next three years.
