QUEST runs events that bring qualitative researchers from across the University into dialogue with each other and with qualitative experts from other institutions, as well as collaborative events with other qualitative research groups outside of Southampton.

We have also collaborated with the University of Southampton ESRC Doctoral Training Centre to provide training for academic staff and PGR students in the qualitative data analysis packages NVivo and Leximancer.
