All organisations or groups that wish to work with the IPCRN on a research project need to apply to the IPCRN in advance of the beginning of the project.

The Process

Before applying, it is important to contact the IPCRN in advance of the application to discuss the project informally and to ensure that all your requirements can be met.

Applications are considered on request on a rolling basis.

Once applications are received, applications are considered initially by the Applications Committee. Following this, a recommendation is made the board of the IPCRN, following which the decision regarding the project by the IPCRN is sent to the applicant. This can be an iterative process if clarifications are required.
