An overview


We've changed our visual identity to better reflect the breadth of the NIHR's work - we hope you like our website's new look! Find out more

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.
