IPA carries out research in partnership with members of our researcher network as well as a small group of internal researchers. Scientific advisors, who are also members of the IPA researcher network, provide broader input at the regional or sector level to our strategies for using rigorous research to inform policy and improve the lives of people living in poverty.

Researcher Network

IPA works with a network of more than 600 researchers from a wide variety of institutions.


Scientific Advisors

Scientific Advisors are a dedicated group of IPA-affiliated researchers who provide strategic advice to IPA country offices, sector programs, and research initiatives.


Applied Research & Methods (ARM) Group

The Applied Research & Methods Group is a core team of internal researchers at IPA dedicated to evidence generation and research innovation using the data gathered across hundreds of studies conducted by IPA every year.
