The ESCP research committee aim to provide guidelines and educational materials to support ESCP members for being involved in research.

There are eight members of the Research Committee, one of whom is a representative of the ESCP General Committee. Members serve in the Research Committee for four years1; continuation of office years must be approved annually by the group and is subjected to the General Committee’s approval.

Review Committee members provide expertise on topics under discussion.
Another task of the Research Committee is the Review of abstracts submitted for the spring workshop and October symposium. This activity is led by the Research Committee. A standard operating process is in place.

An ESCP Research Masterclass is normally scheduled for the day prior to the October symposium and is led by member(s) of the Research Committee (involving others where appropriate). Planning for the Masterclass should be discussed each year at the face to face meeting of the Research Committee.

In addition, there is potential for the Research Committee to deliver a research focused workshop during the October symposium. This is also discussed each year at the face to face meeting of the Research Committee.

The Research Committee has a leading role in assigning the Research Grant for which members can submit an application.
