The Exchange: Research and Knowledge Exchange at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland
Welcome to The Exchange , the home of research and knowdge exchange at the Royal Conservatoire. Since the establishment of the Conservatoire’s research arm in 1999 we have been at the forefront in the development of research into and through the performing arts.
Our success was confirmed with our excellent RAE 2008 result, which showed that 85% of our research was of recognized international quality. Our distinctive research portfolio blends traditional research practices with practice-based artistic research, applied research, consultancy and knowledge exchange.
‘Knowledge exchange’ is a term used throughout the higher education sector to describe activity which connects people, practice and ideas between the research environment and the wider world, enhancing people's quality of life, promoting prosperity and adding to the cultural enrichment of our society.
This spirit of exchange is embedded throughout the Conservatoire. Informed research and collaborative practice forms an essential part of student life and is threaded throughout the new curriculum. Research active staff share their knowledge, innovation, performance and educational expertise through numerous projects and consultancies with our partners in the community and the commercial sector.
Our department forms the nexus for all this activity, providing support, growth, space and opportunity for students, staff and external partners alike to connect, create and innovate. We are The Exchange .
