Public Advisory Group

The EBI Public Advisory Group comprises key stakeholders in public engagement and health and social care as well as representatives of public and patient involvement groups linked to research projects at the University of Bristol. The Public Advisory Group works with the Institute to develop a structure that enables public views to be fed into the Institute's strategic thinking, ensures excellent engagement across the research lifecycle, and is complementary to and knitted in with other relevant developments across the University of Bristol.

The group meets a few times per year and researchers across the University are invited to share their research with the group and receive feedback. If you are a University of Bristol researcher and are interested in discussing your research with the group you can find more information on our researchers' guide page.
