Research Training Centre: 50 years of methodological contributions in the Social Sciences
At the Research Training Centre, we apply expertise in a diverse set of social science methods through teaching and research to contribute new insights to the key challenges in society.
The Research Training Centre is based in the School of Social and Political Science, bringing together our key methods initiatives of Q-Step, AQMEN and NCRM, to build on a long tradition of contributions in the development and application of social science methods.
Our core aims are to:
- provide training in a broad range of social science methods to staff and students in Edinburgh and beyond
- apply rigorous social science methods to societal problems in ways that make impact
- generate new research contributions through cutting edge social science methodological development and innovation
- (co)develop mixed methods approaches to address structural intersectional inequalities
