IMPRODOVA is a 36-month European Commission funded research and innovation project which is focused on the human factors shaping institutional responses to domestic abuse. The research involves 8 countries (Austria, Finland, France, Germany, Hungary, Portugal, Scotland, Slovenia), and 16 project partners and is being conducted by Professor Michele Burman, Dr Oona Brooks and Dr Lisa Bradley, all at SCCJR University of Glasgow.

IMPRODOVA is focused on how police and other frontline responders (e.g. medical and social work professionals) respond to domestic abuse in European countries. The research aims to deliver recommendations, toolkits and collaborative training for European police organizations, medical and social work professionals to improve and integrate institutional response to domestic abuse. It is due to be completed by April 2021.
