I want people involved

For researchers who want to find members of the public to get involved in their research.

An overview


Public involvement in research is when the research is carried out with or by members of the public rather than ‘to’, ‘about’, or ‘for’ them. This includes, for example, working with research funders to prioritise research, offering advice as members of a project steering group, commenting on and developing research materials and undertaking research with research participants. For more information, see About public involvement.
