Activator sides

Thursday December 6th, 2pm-4pm, G15 Exchange Station

Would involving stakeholders in the design and delivery of your research add to its value?  How would you go about this?  What are the potential benefits and challenges of making stakeholders collaborators in your research projects?

This interactive ACTivator Side will begin to look at and explain the ‘how, what and why’ of involving stakeholders in the design and delivery of your research. The session will provide an overview of how to identify and engage with key stakeholders from the outset of your research and will look in detail at:

  • scoping activities that can help you to identify the main purpose of your research, your target audience and your key stakeholders
  • the range of and use of engagement events and activities
  • the relevant outputs and outcomes of your research from the perspective of key stakeholders
  • the use of Participatory Action Research (PAR)

The session will also provide you with the opportunity to share ideas about how to involve stakeholders as collaborators in your current/potential research projects and ask questions from academic colleagues with extensive experience in this field.

The session will be facilitated by Ellie McCoy, Beccy Harrison and Dr Hannah Timpson from the Research Engagement and Impact Team at the Public Health Institute. The team has expertise in working with vulnerable populations and engaging with a wide range of stakeholders.
