Since acquiring IRO status, IWM has led two major AHRC-supported research projects:
· Whose Remembrance?, an AHRC Connected Communities project, 2012-13, which investigated the experience of colonial troops in the First World War.
· BBC Monitoring Transcripts: AHRC international Network, 2015-2016, which united academics and researchers from around the world to scope the academic potential of the transcripts of the broadcasts monitored between 1939-1982.
IWM has also been involved in film projects — such as a major restoration of the German Concentration Camps Factual Survey — and acted as co-investigator or project partner on a variety of other research projects.
IWM regularly participates in and organises conferences – usually in partnership with universities or relevant institutions such as the Institute of Historical Research. IWM is a co-organiser – with Royal Holloway University of London, Birkbeck College and Wolverhampton University - of Beyond Camps and Forced Labour: current research into survivors of Nazi persecution, a multi-disciplinary three-day academic conference which has taken place every three years since 2003, attracting scholars researching aspects of survivors of the Nazi regime from around seventeen countries.
Other notable conferences include:
