Research Harmonisation Group Award Schizophrenia International Research Society



The Schizophrenia International Research Society (SIRS) has awarded its first ever Research Harmonisation Group Award (RHG) to the conveners Wim Veling, M.D., Ph.D. and Craig Morgan, Ph.D. Their proposal will “develop a blueprint for cataloguing and harmonizing data from existing first episode psychosis cohorts and identifying a consensus set of measures for such cohorts. It will explore how an international infrastructure can be built for sharing and harmonizing first episode psychosis epidemiology cohort data”.

The purpose of an RHG is to produce methods that will allow sharing and/or comparing data across countries to accelerate schizophrenia research internationally. The RHG is expected to harmonise measurement techniques or data sharing that will support funded studies that will boost research outcomes.
