The Association for Qualitative Research was founded in 1980 and represents the interests of our members in the qualitative research industry.

AQR has established itself as the internationally recognised Hub of Qualitative Thinking via education and training programs, seminars, networking opportunities and liaising with the wider research industry.

Our core objective is to serve the interests of our members through a range of initiatives. This includes defining and building an understanding of the commercial value of qualitative research, providing inspiring and valuable training courses, creating forums that facilitate debate and advance qualitative research methodology, promoting qualitative research as a career, providing networking opportunities and social events, and promoting the highest professional industry standards within our industry.
