NCCPE – Research in Context Training Course

There are significant benefits for researchers willing to engage with the social context of their work. These include finding fresh perspectives on their work; developing new skills; and developing more impactful research. However there are also challenges. Research is increasingly in the public eye and many emerging research areas provoke strong public interest, whilst others are condemned as irrelevant and a waste of public money.  Funders and policy makers have introduced a range of new policies, requirements and codes of practice to help researchers respond to these opportunities and challenges in effective ways.
