The value of involving stakeholders from outside academia in research is increasingly recognised by researchers, funders and policy-makers amongst others. This workshop will explore;

(i) how to identify and reach out to stakeholders such as service-users, the public and practitioners to involve them at different stages of the research life-cycle;

(ii) different approaches to involvement ranging from engagement to more participatory models used across different areas of research;

(iii) practical guidance about achieving stakeholder involvement in your research.
