When planning a study’s engagement activities, there are several categories of engagement-related costs that research teams should consider: compensation and recognition, partner expenses, project staff, engagement event and/or meeting costs, and incorporating partner feedback.

PCORI recommends that budgeting for engagement activities follow the phases of research as outlined in PCORI’s engagement rubric (planning the study; conducting the study; and disseminating and implementing study findings). Aligning a detailed budget with the activities for engagement outlined in your engagement plan will ensure that you have sufficient funds to support the engagement activities in your project.
