UKPRP – Webinar series design and delivery

UK Prevention Research Partnership
Cynergy were recently commissioned to support the Health Foundation and their partners as part of the UK Prevention Research Partnership (UKPRP). The UKPRP is a £50 million multi-funder initiative that supports novel research into primary prevention of non-communicable diseases to improve population health and reduce health inequalities.

The project

In its first round of funding, the UKPRP awarded £25 million to eight projects, bringing together leading researchers as well as local and national policy makers, charities, non-government organisations (NGOs) and the public. The awards cover a wide variety of issues, including investigating the approaches used by commercial producers of tobacco, alcohol and food to promote products; school food systems and their effects on the quality of children’s diets; and embedding health considerations in urban planning and decision-making processes.

With the consortia and networks now all well-established, the Health Foundation and UKPRP commissioned Cynergy to design, organise and deliver four webinars that would share some of the emerging findings from the work of the consortia and bring in key voices within the relevant industry sectors to add a further level of context around policy implications and challenges.

Cynergy managed the project throughout, ensuring all involved were kept up to date on progress of actions; designed the virtual delivery format; sourced and liaised with the webinar chairs and speakers; set up and managed the booking platform and registrations; and made sure the webinars were accessible, delivered seamlessly, and recorded and edited for the on-demand content.


Across all four webinars:

1,357 Total registrations for live sessions and access to on-demand content


613 Total live attendees


45.2% Average conversion rate (sign up to live attendance)


548 webinar recording views

“Fiona and Megan were very efficient, responsive and proactive in setting up the necessary processes and ensured that all the materials were on brand and accessible. The internal project team and external speakers for each webinar received excellent communication from Cynergy… [They] ensured the webinars ran smoothly on the day and provided a prompt turnaround of captioned recordings of each session. Overall, we were really happy with the quality of the work and service provided and would recommend Cynergy for similar projects..”

UKPRP Event 2: Systems science in public health: turning thought into action


With the support of Cynergy, the Health Foundation and UKPRP delivered four high-quality, seamless and engaging webinars to a diverse audience across sectors such as health care, local authority and academia, all of which had a great turnout. Following their success, we hope to work with UKPRP again soon, to share more of the incredible work their award holders are doing in prevention research.
