Research & Outreach Projects

The research activities of the Hunter IC-RRTC is generating new knowledge (i.e., evidence to support interventions) by synthesizing available knowledge, analyzing data from existing sources, and creating and analyzing new data—the National Survey on Disability and Employment (NSDE).

Our outreach activities (training, dissemination and technical assistance) promote the effective transfer of research knowledge to the field. These activities address the utilization of findings and training/dissemination by leveraging the extensive knowledge we have developed from previous work, as well as the knowledge that we are gaining from our current research projects.
