Now in its 10th year, the distinctive creative research ethos of the National Centre for Research in the Performing Arts (NCRPA) at the Royal Conservatoire of Scotland continues to flourish. The Royal Conservatoire's work is informed by links with the creative industries at every level and our knowledge exchange activities encompass a wide span of activity including specialist voice work, public policy research and consultancy, and cultural engagement.

The Royal Conservatoire of Scotland was formerly the Royal Scottish Academy of Music and Drama (RSAMD).
