What is this event about?
Co-production in health and social care research has the potential to increase equality, fairness and inclusivity in order to influence research for the better. Co-production is said to be both a means of evolving and improving public involvement in research and also of ensuring that research is more closely aligned and responds better to community needs and expectations.

Co-production can present challenges to established ways of doing research. It raises questions, for example about power sharing, ethics, intellectual property and how co-produced research should be shared across society.

We invite you to be part of the conversation that helps bring these tensions into the light and share suggestions of how to approach them so that we can learn to embrace and work with them and each other more effectively.

Who is this event aimed at?

  1. Funders, sponsors and individuals who want to find out more and to encourage and foster high quality co-produced research
  2. Health and social care researchers who want to get underneath the rhetoric of co-production
  3. Community, charity and voluntary organisations who have direct experience of co-production which they can share with others
  4. People (general public/individuals/ patients/ carers) outside of institutions and organisations who would like to understand more about co-production
  5. People working in co-production in other relevant fields (e.g. public services) who have experiences/ expertise to share
