October 18, 2023

Stakeholder Matchmaking Sessions to Help Those with Similar Research Interests Find Partners for Collaboration

Register by Wednesday, October 25, 2023

Register for a matchmaking session


ACL’s National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is sponsoring its second year of virtual matchmaking sessions for ACL/NIDILRR stakeholders to connect with each other to share information, discuss common research interests, and, ultimately, find partners for research collaboration.

From October-November 2023, NIDILRR stakeholders will sign up for sessions based on similar research interests and will be provided with a virtual Zoom room to meet and talk. Each session will consist of one or more presenters and participants. Based on the discussion, stakeholders may capture information about each other and connect individually with each other to partner with after the session.

ACL and NIDILRR are currently seeking participants for these sessions. Participants are stakeholders who have similar research interests and who will listen during the session, provide feedback and respond to questions, and ask their own questions.

Please note, ACL and NIDILRR are sponsoring the sessions but will not be participating in the sessions in order to maintain integrity in future grant processes, such as peer review, and are not endorsing any content discussed.

Register as a Participant

If you are interested in joining a stakeholder matchmaking session as a participant, you can view additional details about the sessions and register by Wednesday, October 25, 2023.

An opportunity to request disability accommodations will be provided in each session registration link. If you have difficulties completing the registration or have any questions about this information, please email

Please note that by registering, stakeholders give their permission to share their contact information with other registrants.

NIDILRR, part of ACL, generates new knowledge and promotes its effective use so that people with disabilities can perform activities of their choice in the community. NIDILRR also works to expand society’s capacity to provide full opportunities and accommodations for people with disabilities.
