Event description
Come and hear examples of ways in which you can shape and collaborate on exciting research taking place at the University of York.

About this Event

From increasing understanding and awareness of food poverty to co-developing new approaches to improving mental health and well-being, the public have a vital role to play in shaping and generating new research which tackles important real-world challenges.

A number of short illustrated talks will give examples of collaborative projects between researchers at or partnering with the University of York and members of the public, including patients. They will show how public involvement can go beyond participating in trials, interviews and questionnaires, to fully partnering with researchers to decide which questions should be prioritised and co-designing different approaches and potential solutions.
