Thank you to the organisers for convening this group. Some themes/questions emerging from the breakout group I was in:
– To what extent are RoR activities inclusive of wider public voices? Do we risk talking in a closed room / is this appropriate (not least given PPIE requirements of all other funded research)?
– How bought in are decision-makers within funding organisations to the kind of critical analysis that underpins RoR? Is there a danger of conducting ‘pure’ but not ‘applied’ RoR if these stakeholders are not engaged throughout?
– What is the learning culture within organisations and there a bias of focus of RoR/evaluations towards proving not improving?
