The Research on Research (RoR) Team
We are based at the Wessex Institute, the University of Southampton as part of the NIHR Evaluation, Trials and Studies Coordinating Centre. We investigate and provide robust evidence on the management, delivery and dissemination of research among funders and the wider research community.
The Advisory Group
The Advisory Group for the RoR registry and hub is a group of experts working in the RoR field who provided advice on the creation of the registry and the space for the RoR community. The RoR team and Advisory group are working in collaboration on activities to support the adoption of the RoR registry by the community.
Collaborations and support
The Research on Research registry and hub collaborates with initiatives and groups that look at specific areas of research activity to support our aim of bringing together and connecting different communities within the research on research space. We also support and are supported by these groups working in projects, organising events or presenting seminars.
TrialForge promotes a systematic approach to making trials more efficient by looking across all processes and adding up small gains in design and delivery, improving the trial system as a whole.
The Ensuring Value in Research Funders’ Forum (EViR) offers an international community of shared practice and facilitated learning to increase the value of health-related research.
The Core Outcome Measures in Effectiveness Trials Initiative (COMET) develops agreed standardised outcomes sets that should be measured and reported as a minimum in all clinical trials in specific areas of health or health care.
We would like to thank the involvement and support of Dani Preedy, Liz Tremain, and Richard Dudley from the NIHR Evaluation, Studies and Trials Coordinating Centre, and Matt Westmore from the Health Research Authority.
