Research & Development

ACORD’s Research & Development area publishes white papers, studies, and other research and thought leadership materials.


This research material is created with the goal of delivering additional value to members through the development and dissemination of industry-leading business and technology insights.

ACORD R&D has established partnerships with academic institutions, industry information providers, and leading consulting firms. These sources, along with our in-house R&D team, provide data and subject matter expertise used in the creation of proprietary and co-branded thought leadership. The R&D team engages in a variety of research methods to collect and analyze information, and use it to develop strategic points of view across those topics most important to industry stakeholders.

ACORD publishes white papers based on our original research, and distributes papers released by our research partners. We offer full access to these papers as a free benefit to our members. View our currently available white papers in our Research Library.
