Inaugral meeting of the UK Network for Participatory Researchers

We would like to invite any members of the CC list who are interested in participatory research to the inaugural meeting of the UK Network for Participatory Researchers.

Time: 9.30-12.30
Date: September 12th 2014
Venue: Northumbria University, Newcastle upon Tyne (room to be confirmed)

The term participatory research (PR) is now widely used as a way of categorising research that has moved beyond researching “on” to researching “with” participants. The aim of PR is to maximize the participation of those whose life or work is the subject of the research. In PR people with experience of the focus of the research influence decision making and shape that research. This differentiates it from other forms of research where people are invited to take part in research that has already been shaped without their involvement.

The purpose of this meeting will be to meet, to share our experience and to determine the future nature of the Network, its purpose and how we would like to develop it.

We look forward to seeing you on the 12th September 2014 to establish this new network with international links with participatory researchers world wide.
