Southampton Centre for Research Engagement & Impact (SCREI)

The remit and aim of SCREI is to ensure that our research engages effectively with those intended to benefit from, use or enable its outcomes, across public, NHS workforce, policy and industry groups.

A centre of excellence, SCREI brings together the R&D functions:

  • Communications and Engagement (C&E)
  • Patient and Public Involvement (PPI)
  • Equality, Diversity and Inclusion (EDI)

The centre's activities promote an equitable, diverse and inclusive research culture within UHS and the wider Southampton clinical research partnership. It helps ensure this fully engages and involves public, patients, colleagues and users of research in driving research and research delivery that yields ever more benefit and impact.


Dr Christopher Stock

Head of the Southampton Centre for Research Engagement & Impact

We want research that's inclusive, focussed on need, and gets to the frontline faster. To do that, we need patients, clinical staff, policy makers and our communities involved at every stage. This Centre will support that by combining our expertise and resources in new ways, across the entire research system
