RPPC will conduct evidence-based research. It will publish and disseminate whitepapers and reports useful to the stakeholders to make effective policy decisions. It will seek to assess and advocate policy decisions and reforms respectively based on the research. Further, as part of the infrastructure for research it will become a responsible repository, and clearinghouse for databases, information systems and other references critical to public policy analyses. While RPPC will welcome all research on public policy issues, it will focus on a few signature projects that will make a significant contribution at the local, state and national levels. To meet the demands of this type of research RPPC will draw upon the Ramaiah institutions’ faculty and students. Some of the interdisciplinary areas of research could be (social) entrepreneurship in business, public health, electronic commerce regulation, digitization and privacy of information, higher education governance and non-discrimination in employment laws.
