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.
