About the Project
Core work areas include:
• Innovative inclusive methods: developing, sharing and applying these in co-producing research, from priority-setting to dissemination
• Implementation: building shared understandings and collaborative health and social care “communities of practice” to inform equity in decision-making, to embed inclusive research practices.
Your studentship project should build and evaluate novel, critical uses of locally-focused research data; working with ARC EoE research themes ( https://arc-eoe.nihr.ac.uk/ ) to extend research projects’ scope to co-produce approaches to involving community and volunteer members in evaluating research, services, and inform equitable local decision-making for sustainable responses to global challenges to inclusive support.
Research topics fitting within these areas or will be considered, and prioritised if they also:
- Develop links between IIRP and one or more other ARC Themes(s);
- Involve Great Yarmouth and Waveney, one of ARC EoE’s four ‘populations in focus’, (others: Peterborough and Fenland, Stevenage and Thurrock) where communities experience inequalities of income, health or access to applied research to address these.
