QRN Hub Overview

Centrally funded by UNSW Sydney in early 2017, the Qualitative Research Network (QRN) Hub is the first initiative to offer a range of services in qualitative research. The aim of the Hub is to expand and strengthen scholarship in the rigorous application and use of qualitative research methods.

The Hub hosts regular seminars, training workshops, and other events held at UNSW, and is open to staff, students, and researchers beyond UNSW.

With the principle of knowledge sharing, and representation from qualitative researchers across disciplines and research centres, the QRN Hub is open to all who are currently conducting or wish to learn how to conduct rigorous qualitative research, or explore new, innovative approaches to research.

While supported by the School of Public Health and Community Medicine and The Black Dog Institute, the Hub is guided by an advisory panel of members across the Faculties of Medicine, Arts & Social Sciences, Built Environment, and Law, in addition to research centres, including The Kirby Institute, the Centre for Primary Health Care and Equity, the Centre for Social Research in Health, and the Social Policy Research Centre.
