The mission of ICE's Research and Development (R&D) program is to better inform the individuals leading credentialing organizations. Many aspects of credentialing will always require ongoing analysis while other cutting-edge trends require the establishment of baseline information in order to progress. Our research reflects the current state of the industry: with new reports released each year, ICE continues to supply data that challenges member organizations andthe programs they administer.

The success of past ICE Research Projects is extensive. The plans for future projects are equally vibrant. In addition, ICE has the goal to develop a professional, scholarly journal, and receive (and offer) research grants to supplement ongoing research efforts. See below for a list of past and future R&D projects and reports.
