The mission of IMIRGe is to produce world-class analytical and empirical music industries research that informs public and policy debates in Scotland, the UK, and internationally. We also specialize in the study of popular music culture and society.

Our staff have a track record of leading funded research projects in dialogue with policy makers, charities and the third sector, trade bodies and the wider music industries.

We value our role as an independent voice and aim to be a highly respected source of critical analysis.
