Research is Illyriad's basic method of advancing the capabilities of your cities. Carrying out research requires a library and sufficient research points (also produced at the library). Higher levels of library produce research points faster, but do not shorten research time. Each technology must also be researched once at every city and its requirements must be first met at that city.

Research once acquired is never lost at a city and research progress will not be interrupted if the research item's prerequisites are lost. Furthermore, any passive (non-interactive) benefits will persist. However, active-use benefits, like queuing production of new resources or units or casting spells, will be disabled while prerequisites such as required building levels are not met.

Destruction of a city eliminates everything associated with that city, and resettling the tile will not result in recovered research.
