EGIPP cultivates an active research culture and supports high quality research through four main roles:

  • Providing a forum to debate and refine new research ideas at an early stage of development through regular lunchtime staff research seminars
  • Fostering individual staff development by research mentoring and by appraisal
  • Organizing a flexible process of internal peer review of book proposals and grant applications to disseminate best practice with reference to academic quality criteria, presentation, fit to funding schemes, and track record
  • Undertaking research student training, appraisal and progression.
  • Informing public debate on topical issues through roundtables.
