Stakeholder engagement is important to consider at all stages of the research process, including periods before grant submission. Working with stakeholders during the proposal development process allows for inclusion of stakeholder perspectives in the proposal and builds the foundation for strong partnerships that continue during research implementation and beyond. In this session, experts will share experiences and best practices for involving stakeholders in all stages of the proposal development continuum, from idea generation to grant submission. We will also discuss available mechanisms for compensating stakeholders in the both the proposal development and research implementation phase.

Panelists include:

David Carroll, PhD, Proposal Development, NC TraCS Institute

Lori Carter-Edwards, PhD – Co-Director of Community Academic Resources for Engaged Scholarship (CARES), NC TraCS Institute and Research Associate Professor, Public Health Leadership, Gillings School of Global Public Health

Karen Demby, PhD – Administrative Director, Team Science, NC TraCS Institute

Quince Fleming, MBA – Community Expert and Founder, QD Fleming and Associate

Ginny Lewis, MSW – Community Engagement Specialist, CARES, NC TraCS Institute
