The IMR fosters musical research of all kinds.


We promote collaboration between researchers, institutions and disciplines, and build links between the academic community and the wider public.

The Institute provides services for researchers and promotes events, ranging from student training and early career research days to the IMR Distinguished Lecture Series.

The IMR is based at the University of London’s Senate House. Formerly part of the School of Advanced Studies, it is now supported by Royal Holloway, University of London.
