Research co‑production is increasingly seen as one of the most effective ways to ensure research impact. Rooted in ‘engaged scholarship’ – the perspective that research is a collective rather than a solitary exercise – it offers academics and practitioners the opportunity to jointly initiate, develop and implement a research project, to follow it through, analyse the data, and to share and publicise the findings. As the approach blurs and challenges traditional boundaries of ‘the researcher’ and ‘the researched’, it raises a range of ethical, practical and methodological issues.

This paper summarises a CGAP roundtable discussion held on 2 November 2011 at Cass Business School, London, as part of the 9th ESRC Festival of Social Science. The event brought together academics and third sector practitioners to share their experiences of co‑producing research and to consider the benefits and challenges that joint academic‑voluntary sector research presents to both sides.
