NIDILRR Stakeholder Match-Making Sessions

October 20, 2022

ACL's National Institute on Disability, Independent Living, and Rehabilitation Research (NIDILRR) is sponsoring virtual match-making sessions for ACL/NIDILRR stakeholders to connect with each other to share information, discuss common research interests, and find partners for research collaboration.

During October and November 2022, stakeholders will be matched based on similar research interests and will be provided with a virtual Zoom room to meet. Each session will consist of one or more presenters and participants. 

  • Presenters are stakeholders who are seeking partnership and collaboration for research purposes or stakeholders who have a research question or a specific research topic idea and want to make a pitch to the researchers. During each session, presenters are asked to briefly share information about their organization and their research interest and to pose questions to matched stakeholders. 
  • Participants are stakeholders who are have similar research interests and who will be listening during the session. They will provide feedback, respond to questions, and ask their own questions. 

After the discussion, stakeholders may connect individually with each other to partner after the session.

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

If you are interested in joining a match-making session as presenter or participant, please complete the brief survey using the individual links below by Tuesday, October 25, 2022.

An opportunity to request disability-related accommodations will be provided on the survey. If you have difficulties completing the survey or have any other questions, please email
