The National Institute for Health Research (NIHR) announced it intends to undertake a strategic review of public involvement in research earlier this week.

The 'Breaking boundaries: thinking differently about public involvement in research' review will offer a variety of ways in which the public can contribute to the process of gathering data and evidence. The NIHR hopes that as it is the first review of public involvement since its inception in 2006, it will help to shape the next decade of public involvement in research.

The NIHR aims to publish a report and recommendations in time for the INVOLVE conference 'Changing Landscapes', in Birmingham on 26 and 27 November 2014. 

... the time feels right to take stock of what has been achieved, but also to think about what we want the future to look like. - Simon Denegri, NIHR National Director for Public Participation and Engagement in Research Chair
