The PEC engages industry from end to end of the research process. We prioritise transparency with industry and our other stakeholders, regarding research priority setting, using our website to publish details of our engagement structures. We offer three partnership models for anyone in industry wanting to help shape our research agenda and deliver our work programme.

Initial Industry Partners


Become part of the PEC Network

Network membership is open to anyone who wants to engage in the PEC’s programme of events to shape our agenda, share knowledge, build expertise and network with those with a common interest.

Participation is free of charge.


Become a Research Partner

Research Partners co-curate events on topics of shared interest, have access to the PEC’s experts to support their own events and activities, have the chance to collaborate on specific research projects and receive an acknowledgement of their support in PEC publications and at events. Partners contribute financially or in-kind in staff time or data.


Become a Research Co-commissioner

Research Co-commissioners are those organisations that share a common agenda with the PEC and who benefit from co-designing and co-commissioning research and co-producing activities like seminars and workshops. They make financial and in-kind contributions to the PEC.
