Research and innovation into global challenges will affect all of our lives and yet the people involved in designing, funding and regulating these technologies come from remarkably similar backgrounds.

This guide draws on the observations and learnings of Nesta's Inclusive Innovation team, exploring why public involvement is essential and sharing seven key principles that could form the basis of a new model of public engagement in decision-making about research, technology and innovation.

At Nesta we are currently carrying out a range of projects which seek to experiment with various methods of public engagement and this is a preliminary draft guide. We welcome all comments and suggestions that others may have.
