This is a collaborative project funded within the Seventh Framework Programme (FP7) to research the participation of civil society organisations (CSOs) within research. Investigating how CSOs within Euclid Network’s wider network are currently involved in research and how they are able to do this successfully, will allow us to share best practices for the future engagement of CSO practitioners in research in order to produce more representative outcomes.
