Needs to: a) visually be clearer on front end on a project is from a particular organisation b) you can filter search all the research in the front end to just show research from a particular organisation. Also, a unique URL should be generated so this filtered research can easily be shared.

to see clearly the research conducted by a particular project
Want to see the journey a project has gone through. Seeing the journey the research could benefit every library visitor not just service assessor. So I wonder if we could add another one about explaining the journey as it will help to build trust and understanding. I like the idea of a paragraph telling the story of the research as shown on this blog post https://userresearch.blog.gov.uk/2020/04/30/how-we-developed-a-simple-user-research-library-at-ofsted/
