The TiGRE Library

The TiGRE library makes the scientific results of the project available to you in various ways.

  • As a research project, TiGRE publishes results in peer-reviewed scientific journals and other non peer-reviewed venues, and delivers presentations at various scientific conferences
  • The findings are also translated into policy recommendations published in a series of four policy briefs.
  • Our webinar series on 'Trust & Regulatory Governance in an Age of Crisis' features presentations from outstanding speakers. TiGRE organises various events to maximise outreach and impact.
  • TiGRE also makes detailed reports – called 'deliverables' – available, if they can be made publicly accessible. These 'deliverables' are reports to the EU funding body on the results achieved for one or more project tasks.
  • The 'Publishable summary' is the project summary for the EU funding body and the public, cumulating the status of the project every one to two years.
