Bournemouth University

Joined 6 Mar 2023

Our goal at Bournemouth University is for those who are most affected by health, economic and social inequalities to lead the way in shaping responses and improving outcomes. People with lived experience expertise are integral to BU’s vision to inspire learning, advance knowledge and enrich society through the fusion of education, research and practice.

The BU PIER Partnership

The PIER (Public Involvement in Education and Research) Partnership is an award-winning initiative at Bournemouth University. We facilitate collaborations between people with lived experience, students and academics to enhance the student journey and inform all stages of research. 

Activity is based on meaningful engagement where everyone involved feels valued and respected for their lived experience and expertise.

Through VOICE we hope to capture a wealth of lived experience expertise.

Bournemouth University Clinical Research Unit

Bournemouth University Clinical Research Unit (BUCRU) offers a collaborative model for supporting and conducting health-related research in Dorset. BUCRU supports researchers in improving the quality, quantity and efficiency of research across Bournemouth University (BU) and local NHS Trusts, by:

  • Helping researchers to develop high quality applications for external research funding (including small grants)
  • On-going collaborative involvement in funded research projects

BUCRU is partly funded by the National Institute for Health Research (NIHR), and incorporates the Dorset and Salisbury office of the NIHR Research Design Service South West (RDS SW).

BUCRU Public Involvement work is conducted in collaboration with BU PIER Partnership and VOICE.
