Research and Consultancy Studies

CORPAS also takes care of compilation and maintaining the databases of the Institute's research and consulting assignments. Consultancy and Research projects constitute one of the major activities of the Institute along with teaching and training. Through consultancy and research projects, the Institute seeks to augment the existing body of knowledge on rural management, improving the management of rural organisations, and influencing the public policy for creation of conducive environment for effective rural organisations. While it provides opportunities to the Institute to share the concerns of the designated organisations, help evolve solutions to complex problems and learn, it also enables the faculty to keep in step with changing realities of the sector and bring fresh inputs to the teaching and training programmes of the Institute.IRMA has done consulting assignments for many major national and international bodies including Government of India, The World Bank, ILO, UNICEF, UNDP, SDC, and FORD Foundation. The Institute made its debut in the early eighties with projects in milk and oil co-operatives, but soon the Institute began to receive offers from voluntary organisations, NGOs, funding agencies involved in rural sector and even government bodies dealing with rural development. Besides, the Institute also has a provision to fund small research projects under its own Research Fund. Please see Research and Consultancy Studies for a list of ongoing and completed projects carried out by the faculty. Copies of the studies are avaialable in IRMA Library for reference.
