Research Professoriate


Queen Margaret University (QMU) Research Professoriate

The QMU Professoriate acts as an informal academic think tank, informing and influencing research and knowledge exchange  agendas - internally and externally.

Members of the professoriate also deliver a series of lectures at different times during the year. These have two important aims: to disseminate research outcomes ; and to signal QMU's commitment to ensuring the translation of this research  to the various communities and stakeholder groups we serve.
