The pandemic demonstrated the use of data is part of our national conversation and has an increasingly vital role to play in research. To unlock the full potential of data for research and statistics to improve people’s lives, we believe the public needs to be actively and consistently heard, engaged and involved in decisions around how their data is used. However, current efforts to involve and engage the public are often fragmented across the sector.

To address this challenge, HDR UK joined the Public Engagement in Data Research Initiative (PEDRI) a year ago to ensure meaningful public involvement and engagement across the data ecosystem are embedded in our work.

The event is being held at the Wellcome Trust, Gibbs Building, 215 Euston Road, London, NW1 2BE and online.
