• MIDAS has established methodological sub-groups, providing the opportunity for people with a specialist interest in the use and development of a particular research methodology to establish a collaborative network

• The sub-groups allow people to meet to discuss, learn, develop and apply the methodology in health and social care research

• The sub-groups have the opportunity to support the development and delivery of research ideas, proposals, projects and funding applications in collaboration with ARC NWC member organisations

• Sub-groups are led by a senior members of ARC NWC with expertise in the methodological specialism. Members are invited to join the sub-groups and contribute to their work from within the ARC NWC’s member organisations (including academics, clinicians, service commissioners / providers, and patient/public advisers)
