Researchers are increasingly asked to be more open and transparent about how they work. There is a greater need to demonstrate 'impact' and to 'engage' with different people and communities. Funding bodies often ask how patients and the public will be 'involved' in research.


  • What does this mean for researchers?
  • How do we effectively engage and involve people?
  • How can we demonstrate impact?


Our training courses are targeted mainly at professionals working in research from the laboratory to the bedside of a patient.
