IPA Research

The IPA's Board, at its July 2012 meeting in Toronto, devoted a great deal of time to consideration of IPA funding for research.

The Board reaffirmed its commitment to research funding and lifted the temporary freeze it had imposed on the International Research Board (“IRB”) pending consideration of this subject.


It agreed that it wanted at least 70% of the research budget to be allocated to projects to serve the IPA’s first strategic goal, Promoting Psychoanalysis (the remaining amount to be allocated for a broader research agenda).


The Board also decided to establish a liaison group between itself and the IRB to create an informative dialogue; and decided to discuss the Research Training Project at its January meeting.
