At SSIM research is largely issue focused, applied, connected to the real world and action (influencing policy and/or problem solving) oriented. It is also directed at strengthening teaching and training and to the improvement of management. SSIM believes that there is a thin dividing line, if any, between consulting and research. While the output of consulting is often private and confidential, the emphasis in research is to wider dissemination through publication and adding to the existing knowledge base.
