Fronting up involves researchers meeting with stakeholders (next and end-users) to share updates and results early and regularly throughout research projects. This helps to keep stakeholders engaged with the research, especially when users identify opportunities for implementing results in their business. It also provides an opportunity to understand what the emerging research results mean for users, provides a check that emerging results are relevant to users, helps researchers understand how research results fit with user knowledge, and identifies new questions users have.
