Consumer session: Dragons’ Den

13:00-14:00

Room: Default Location

Led by members of the NCRI Consumer Forum, this session offers the opportunity for researchers to discuss ideas with or pitch research projects to small panels of knowledgeable consumers who are already involved in research – the friendliest and most helpful Dragons you will ever meet.
The Dragons’ Den offers practical on-the-spot help and advice for researchers seeking consumer input to their study proposal, at any stage of the research process. We can support the design, approval, funding and delivery of research studies, as well as adding quality to the research itself, and disseminating the results.

This session will:

1. Offer researchers input from consumers on their study proposal, or consumer views on ideas being formulated.

2. Allow researchers to gain experience in presenting their research idea to a consumer audience and facilitate discussions about their research.

3. Offer researchers the opportunity to engage and involve consumers more effectively and productively in future, and consumers the opportunity to support research more effectively and productively.
