Public Involvement Standards Development


Welcome to our project website


The aim of the project is to improve the quality and consistency of public involvement (PI) in research through the development and introduction of national standards.

Over the last eighteen months we, as a UK-wide partnership, have been developing a set of standards and indicators for public involvement in research. Please see this slide set for a summary of our work to date.

By the end of March 2018, we will publish a revised version of the standards that responds to the feedback gathered from a consultation carried out in 2017.

From April 2018 to April 2019, the next stage in developing the standards is to make sure that they work in practice.

Would you be interested in testing out the standards? Find out more in the Test bed section of this website.
