International Research Collaborations

QMU is proud of its sustainable, responsive and inclusive research that is connected internationally and rooted locally.  

Many of our staff have internationally excellent research profiles and we remain alert to opportunities to attract world leading researchers who complement our identified strengths.

We encourage and support our researchers in developing high-quality international research networks and as a university we foster strategic, global, institutional partnerships.   We connect with leading universities and organisations both nationally and internationally to tackle key global challenges.

Our research is truly cross-disciplinary. The Centre for Applied Social Sciences (CASS) draws in researchers from enterprise and management, nursing, occupational and art therapies, sociology and psychology to examine issues of individual and social relevance including social inclusion and exclusion in education and the workplace, prejudice in social media and political identity. 

Collaboration is a key feature of the Centre for Health, Activity and Rehabilitation Research (CHEAR).  They work with colleagues both nationally and internationally to explore how to improve the quality of life of those with long-term health conditions as well as the nutritional and physical well-being of the general public.  

The Institute of Global Health and Development (IGHD) applies critical thinking and practice engagement to develop solutions to contemporary health and development challenges including the health and wellbeing of disadvantaged people living in post-conflict countries.

We have a strong and established portfolio of international funding from various sources including the EU, Department for International Development (DFID), and the Global Challenges Research Fund (GCRF), and other overseas funding bodies and Governments.

The sections below highlight the locations of some our substantive global collaborations and partnerships.
