Insight & Research Projects

Here at Oxfordshire Sport and Physical Activity, we understand that every project and / or organisation is different. Therefore, all ad hoc research requests will be personally reviewed by our specialist Insight and Research Officer (IRO) in order to determine the feasibility and scope of each request. Once your request has been reviewed, you will be contacted by the IRO who will inform you of your next steps.

As our resources are limited in this area, not every request will be successful. However, our IRO will offer advice on how you can personally take your project forward and propose a recommended methodology for you to utilise in your project.

The cost of each successful research request will vary dependent on the proposed methodology and the desired outputs of the research.
