Research Strategy

The breadth of research conducted by IPAS members is categorised under six Research Themes, each led by a pair of Theme Leaders who are knowledgeable of the science and research programs within the Theme.

The role of the Theme Leaders is to:

  • Advocate for the needs arising from the Theme
  • To develop strategies to grow opportunities for the Theme
  • Facilitate action within the Theme
  • Facilitating opportunities between IPAS Themes
  • Endorsing applications for internal IPAS Schemes
  • Organising annual Theme events
