People in Research website relaunched

Please visit the new People in Research website www.peopleinresearch.org

The new site aims to help research organisations and researchers find members of the public to get actively involved in their work by enabling them to advertise their opportunities.  Members of the public can search the opportunities database to see if there is any work that they are interested in  getting involved in.  They can also find out more about getting involved in research and the different ways that they can become involved by viewing and listening to videos of the experiences of others.
 
Jenny Walton and Malcolm Harrison worked with the UK Clinical Research Collaboration and INVOLVE to redevelop the site following an independent evaluation of the People in Research website in  2009.
 
We would like to thank all those who were involved in helping us develop the new site either by agreeing to be videoed or by testing and commenting on the site as it develops.
 
We welcome your comments and feedback on the website so we can continue to build a useful resource.  If you would like further information about the website please do contact us by email admin@invo.org.uk or telephone 02380 651088.
