This is the third of three videos made at the 2013 launch of GenerationR (, a network for children and young people who advise researchers who wish to do clinical trials involving children and young people.

In September 2013, the NIHR Medicines for Children Research Network ran a groundbreaking event: Generation R. Generation R was conceived, written and run by their Young Person’s Advisory Group. The event sought to engage the life-sciences industry in the importance of children’s research and the invaluable role young people have to play in its development.
