INVOLVE – the national advisory group for the promotion and advancement of public involvement in research – has published its strategy for 2012-2015. See the INVOLVE website for more details.
Work on the strategy began last summer – just as I became INVOLVE’s Chair - and I am very excited about setting to work to deliver this plan over the next 3 years. Shortly, we will also publish our operational plan for 2012-2013. This will help people understand our specific priorities and aims for the year and how they fit with our long-term strategy. We will also be updating the plan regularly to show the progress we are making, including the other people and partners we are working with.
You may be interested that, in the last week or so, INVOLVE has also published an online guide for researchers on how to involve the public in research.
