2. Impact
 Our core business is to engage, innovate and create research that drives global impact. We ensure this
 happens by building the capacity of our researchers, staff and students to create change. All staff are
 encouraged and supported to incorporate policy-level engagement in their research design and
 implementation, in outreach across the community, in media and stakeholder engagement and in
 presentations of their work at professional conferences and with potential philanthropic partners.

 2.2 Collaboration
 We have also established a number of strategic research network alliances as part of the Triple P Research
 Network, in particular in resource-poor or violence-prone communities, and have been successful in
 establishing philanthropic support for this work. Collaborations are now under way with 12 disciplines
 across UQ with research partnerships formed in Brazil, Chile, Panama, Costa Rica and China.

 A substantial amount of international collaboration is taking place between the PFSC and other research
 centres around the world. This research network both enhances Triple P research by including diverse
 perspectives in the research and increases the global impact of the PFSC’s work.

 The following countries are now involved in Triple P research activities and are working either

VC Strategic Funding which began in 2010 seeded a stratospheric increase in publications of PFSC research
and PFSC research collaborations around the world. These gains have only continued to escalate since the
TPIP focus on innovation from 2015.

                                                    Growth in Triple P research output

In 2016, PFSC research outputs included 49 peer-reviewed papers, 7 book chapters, and three new Triple P
resources published. A further 55 PFSC publications are in press. Triple P research was published in 2016 by
201 authors from 56 institutions. To date, there have been 773 papers produced in total across 353
institutions in 30 countries with 1137 authors.
