INVOLVEs draft Guidance about Co-Production in research

  Created on Tuesday, 21 Nov 2017. Posted in Public Involvement | Guidance

This guidance identifies some key principles and features involved in co-producing research. Co-producing research at its simplest means people working in partnership to design, develop and deliver research and knowledge. However Co-producing research is a way of working that requires

  • a change in the power dynamics between researchers, professionals and the public so that there is an equal partnership and joint ownership of key decisions in both the research and the development of knowledge
  • an emphasis on the relationships, new knowledge and outcomes that emerge from the research process.
