INVOLVE and the Mental Health Research Network teamed up to produce a new resource to help with budgeting for the costs of public involvement in research. It can be used for everything from putting together an involvement budget for an entire study to working out how much it will cost to run a one-off consultation event.
The first part of the resource is a guide which:
- provides practical advice on what costs are associated with involvement in research
- includes a step-by-step process for identifying the associated costs and planning the budget
- presents examples of research projects with well-developed budgets for involvement work
- contains tips, links to useful websites, and references.
Please forward this information to your colleagues and networks.
If you have any questions or queries about Budgeting for involvement please contact:
