The IPC is committed to furthering research in the areas of interest of the Paralympic Movement, and facilitates research projects at IPC events, IPC sanctioned competitions and during Paralympic Games. Details on the procedures can be found in the below documents:

- IPC Research Application Policies and Procedures: this document serves as a guideline for applicants

- Initial and Detailed Research Application: Application forms to be completed and submitted to the IPC in different stages of the process.

An overview of previous research projects can be found here.

Note: If you are interested in research in a particular sport which is not an IPC Sport, you should contact the responsible International Federation to be informed on the applicable policies and procedures (e.g. research during UCI Para Cycling World Championships requires approval from the UCI, not from the IPC).
