Digital Badge

The Digital Badge in Patient and Public Involvement (PPI) in Research is a validated micro-credential awarded to earners in an online format. The course is open to researchers at all career stages from within and outside UCC. Participants can take the course in their own time, at their own pace.

The badge highlights the collaborative nature of the PPI Ignite Network as it includes content from powerful PPI contributors and experienced academics from the University of Limerick, the University of Galway, Royal College of Surgeons Ireland, Trinity College Dublin, University College Dublin and Dublin City University- all fellow members of the National PPI Ignite Network.
