Currently, members are able to access two levels of RPS research support:
Level 1 – RPS Review and Support
Intellectual input from the RPS to review and/or support development and delivery of a project. For example, where research teams are seeking stakeholder support for a funding application; RPS involvement as stakeholder e.g. advisory group/steering group/research participant.
Level 2 – RPS Review and Support access to RPS membership
As per Level 1 dissemination e.g. encourage members’ participation in a survey, promotion of the study via social media or networks, active involvement of one more of our Local Practice Forums (LPF) e.g. local event of local member engagement.
The RPS Research Project Review and Support Process does not include:
- review, support or endorsement of requests with no clear research objectives, strategy, design, guidance, ethics approval (if applicable), policy or outcomes;
- review, support or endorsement of market research;
- review, support or endorsement of other commercially focused research unless such research is adopted on the NIHR portfolio or a recommendation is made by the RPS Chief Scientists office.
