Ensuring value in health-related research

The Ensuring Value in Research (EViR) Funders’ Forum developed in June 2017 a Consensus Statement and Guiding Principles to reduce the loss of any research because of it asks the wrong questions, lacks robust research design, is not published or reports are not usable or accessible.

How an international research funder’s forum developed guiding principles to ensure value and reduce waste in research

Through collective engagement, EViR members developed 10 Guiding Principles to enhance the value and efficiency of research while minimising waste. These principles serve as a framework to promote transparency, rigor, and accountability across various stages of the research process. The Guiding Principles emphasise the importance of robust methodologies, data sharing, and stakeholder involvement to optimise research outcomes and resource utilisation. Ultimately, this initiative underline the significance of fostering a culture of responsible research practices to maximise societal impact.
