United Kingdom, 27 March 2014 – Global academic publisher, Emerald Group Publishing, is proud to announce that it is the official media partner of the World Research and Innovation Congress (WRIC) – Pioneers in Healthcare’, for the second year running. The event will bring together healthcare academics to address key issues affecting research developments in the sector, such as international collaboration, funding and patients as research stakeholders.

Delegates will benefit from a dynamic program of keynote presentations, workshops and interactive panel sessions, devised to encourage open discussion and debate.
