Research England has allocated funding to higher education providers in England to be used for participatory or co-produced research. The scheme is a competitive process with a maximum of £10,000 of funding available per project.
Participatory research involves non-academic partners in the research process. This could include contributing to the research question, data collection and analysis and interpretation of results.
All applications will be subject to a panel review and will be judged against how well applications meet the criteria of the scheme and whether the proposal presents a robust, carefully considered project relating to participatory research.
