The Institute of Musical Research (IMR) promotes collaboration between researchers, institutions and disciplines, and builds links between the academic community and the wider public.
The IMR provides services for researchers and promotes events, ranging from student training and early career research days to Distinguished Lecture Series. It has collaborated with the Guildhall School of Music and the University of Cambridge to organise seminar series in Performance Studies. It supports early career researchers in the critical stage after their doctorates, granting over 20 fellowships to early career scholars since 2015.
The IMR is based at the University of London’s Senate House, and holds events nationwide. Formerly part of the School of Advanced Studies, since 2015 it has been supported by the Music Department of Royal Holloway, University of London.
