The PARIP project directly and indirectly addressed the modes of knowledge practice-as-research might develop. It did this by illustrating a range of praxes (practices within which the potential to engender knowledge is imbricated) in its various symposia and conference events and through discussion of the issues at these, and related forms, regionally, nationally, and internationally. The project thus contributed specifically and generally to the evolution of practice-as-research in the UK academy. It conducted specific projects and their documentation; it fostered an environment in which practice-as-research projects might be undertaken with increasing confidence in their recognition; and it engaged debate within the arts communities and between the arts, creative, and cultural industries and other academic disciplines about the place and status of creative practices as research in the context of higher education. The aim of this chapter is to summarize the findings, not by the way of an exhaustive taxonomy but by foregrounding the key debates and selectively referencing some of the practices which have promoted them.
