We involve members of the public in our work. We value the contributions they make to research through the knowledge, experience and skills that they bring. The purpose of this involvement is to improve the quality and relevance of the research that we commission and the other research activities that we manage.
For example in 2012, more than 50 public contributors were involved as members of our funding advisory panels and committees and more than 400 funding applications were reviewed by members of the public.
