Integrated & Effective

Participatory Research.

Participatory Research division follows transdisciplinary and transformative concepts of knowledge creation. Our researchers explore the feasibility of new or improved technology, product, process, service, or solutions. GCRI’s Participatory Research model enables teams to include basic and applied research, design, development, integration, testing, and validation on small-scale prototypes in the laboratory and simulated environments. Projects may contain closely connected but limited demonstration or pilot activities to demonstrate technical feasibility in an immediate operational climate.
