ADR Scotland is seeking to recruit 6-8 people to join and expand its existing Public Panel. Since the pandemic, this is now a predominantly virtual panel and they therefore welcome and encourage applications from people across Scotland.
Are you interested in how data can be used to improve lives, services and public policy? Or how Scotland can make the most of the available data and discover new things about society, such as the impact of Covid-19 on certain groups? If so, please apply to be part of their public panel. They are keen to hear from anyone interested in shaping how data of this kind (called administrative data) can be used for the good of everyone in Scotland.
Our public panel meets online every quarter, to discuss the existing or potential new research projects that SCADR are going to be involved in, and give their input on how best to move forward.
A key part of the SCADR mission is to ensure that data is used effectively and responsibly and that the public are engaged with their plans and research. Activities of the public panel include:
– Discussing proposals for research in a range of areas including health and social care, crime and justice, children’s outcomes, and Covid-19 response and recovery.
– Sharing views and exploring issues and ethics around future strategy and direction of the use of administrative data.
– Helping SCADR to communicate their work effectively and accessibly.
– Advising on their public engagement and how the broader public can be engaged in issues relating to their work.
