The National Centre for Research Methods (NCRM) was established by the Economic and Social Research Council (ESRC) in 2004 and was originally coordinated from the University of Southampton. Since 2014 NCRM has been a partnership between three universities with international reputations in methodological research and training in the social sciences: University of Southampton, University of Manchester and University of Edinburgh.

In January 2020 NCRM entered a new phase with an ESRC award for 5 years. The new phase is focused on delivering a comprehensive programme of cutting-edge research methods training, which has moved entirely online through 2020 and 2021. This phase is still delivered by the Universities of Southampton, Manchester and Edinburgh but the partnership has been significantly expanded to include strategically selected Centre partner institutions who are contributing to the online training portfolio and will deliver training locally across the UK, as pandemic restrictions permit. The nine institutions are UCL, NatCen, WISERD, Bristol, Exeter, Essex, Leeds, Liverpool and Glasgow.
