The Exchange: Research and Knowledge Exchange at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland

Welcome to The Exchange, the home of research and knowledge 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 distinctive research portfolio blends traditional research practices with practice-based artistic research, applied research, consultancy and knowledge exchange

Our success was confirmed with our excellent REF 2014 result, which showed that more than two thirds of our research was either world-leading or internationally excellent, and suggested our research in music and drama has the strongest impact of Scottish work in this field.
