The University of Southampton has been awarded a four year contract worth £3.2 million to deliver the National Institute of Health Research (NIHR) Centre for Patient and Public Involvement, Participation and Engagement, (INVOLVE Coordinating Centre).

As a national advisory group, INVOLVE brings together expertise, insight and experience of public involvement in research, with the aim of advancing it as an essential part of research process. The INVOLVE Coordinating Centre will support this by providing programme management and support for on-going work.

To date, INVOLVE has delivered knowledge, guidance and support that is respected and valued by the public and researchers alike. It has established an international reputation for excellence and leadership in public involvement in research.

Based in the Wessex Institute at the University of Southampton, the new contract will start on 1 February 2016. INVOLVE will build on its strong foundations of providing support and expertise, whilst evolving the way it delivers its services. Through a new partnership with the NIHR Research Design Service, INVOLVE will provide leadership in public involvement in research at national, local and regional levels.
