GRIP Publications

Apart from the papers that were prepared directly out of the GRIP ‘round’ of projects and reports back to funders, papers have been published in local and international journals and others are in preparation. Growing research in practice continues to be an area of interest for the staff members who led the initial round and remain interested in collaborative initiatives particularly those that could involve comparative and alternative strategies for developing practitioner research.
