Wikipedia – Applied research is a form of systematic inquiry involving the practical application of science. It accesses and uses some part of the research communities’ (the academia‘s) accumulated theories, knowledge, methods, and techniques, for a specific, often state-,business-, or client-driven purpose. Applied research is contrasted with pure research (basic research) in discussion about research ideals, methodologies, programs, and projects. SApplied research deals with solving practical problems and generally employsempirical methodologies. Because applied research resides in the messy real world, strict research protocols may need to be relaxed.
