What is embedded research?
Embedded research involves co-locating researchers within non-academic organisations. It is increasingly seen as a powerful way to link research and researchers with practice and practitioners.
This is particularly the case in health and social care, where embedded research can help develop more effective services by encouraging greater interaction between researchers and those responsible for planning, evaluating and delivering services.
