The RDS NE provides PI advice tailored to specific research projects. Once a contact form has been completed, an initial meeting with a First Contact Facilitator (FCF) can be organised. PI can be discussed in this first meeting with either the FCF or the PI Lead. Further advice can be given in subsequent meetings or via e-mail/telephone contact. Request an appointment now.
In addition, researchers are offered the opportunity of presenting their research idea to the Public Involvement Consumer Panel. For information on the panel please visit our Public involvement consumer panel page.
The RDS NE has a limited fund available to assist researchers with the cost of running PI activities. For more information on the Public Involvement Fund please visit our Public Involvement Fund page.
