Core Purpose

The IPPRA team builds partnerships and conducts research by integrating public policy scholarship with the physical and engineering sciences to increase human well-being, improve our social choice infrastructure, and enhance resilience by addressing complex public policy problems and creating opportunities that span natural, technological, and social systems. 

Capacity

IPPRA is an interdisciplinary team with decades of experience in addressing public policy challenges such as those posed by extreme weather and the changing climate, energy policy, environmental policy, the role of government intervention in pandemics, and national security.                                                                                                                                            

Culture

The institutional culture at IPPRA is grounded in transdisciplinary thinking and collaboration. We emphasize finding new ways to bridge basic and applied research, thereby bringing fundamental knowledge to bear on urgent public problems.
