Many funding organisations now involve members of the public in commissioning research. This gives a broader perspective to the review process, by considering the issues that are important from your perspective.

You can get involved in commissioning in a variety of ways, including:

  • reviewing research proposals
  • being a member of commissioning panels or boards
  • being part of the monitoring process of research, once funded
  • being part of a user controlled organisation which commissions research.
