The Middlesex University Dubai Research Committee

The Middlesex University Dubai Research Committee aims to develop and foster academic enquiry that reflects faculty interest and aspiration, as well as to establish innovative investigative engagement within the wider stakeholder community.

Current membership mirrors the fields of discourse active on the campus and our responsibilities include the monitoring and review of research developments, policies and procedures, research mentorship, raising awareness of research opportunities, engendering publication, managing the weekly research seminar series, overseeing research ethics and championing the biennial Middlesex University Dubai ERPBSS conference.


  • The recent and very successful ERPBSS conference took place between Tuesday 26th and Thursday 28th November 2013.
