Research & Knowledge Exchange
Queen Margaret University occupies a distinctive place in the post 1992 higher education system in research excellence and knowledge exchange. As an engaged University we are highly regarded for our innovative, relevant, practice and policy informing work that makes an impact across academic and beyond.
Our research and knowledge exchange is focused on six themes:
QMU has repositories of its research outputs, including publications, theses, and archived data.
The University has received a Bronze Athena SWAN Award in April 2013 in light of its commitment to assisting the recruitment and retention of women in science, engineering and technology (SET).
The Athena SWAN Charter is a recognition scheme for UK universities and their science, engineering and technology (SET) departments. It aims to assist the recruitment, retention and progression of women in SET.
Queen Margaret University is committed to the principles of the Charter and values equality and diversity across its workforce. To support these principles and to promote the role of women in SET, the University has undertaken an internal self-assessment process and has been successful in gaining a Bronze SWAN Award.
The University sees membership of the Charter, with its bronze, silver and gold SWAN recognition awards, as working towards sustaining equitable working environments enabling QMU to identify themselves as employers of choice, not only to their staff, but to students, stakeholders, research councils and industry.
