The work of the Transforming Musicology project is distributed over four UK institutions, with one international partner.

The project also has an advisory panel comprising authorities in a number of fields related to the project.

Goldsmiths' College Computing
The Computing Department at Goldsmiths' College has very strong links with the music information retrieval community and will contribute expertise in enhancing MIR technology. The work on 16th-century lute and vocal music will also be largely based in this department.
Goldsmiths' College Psychology
The Psychology Department at Goldsmiths' College has extensive experience in studying musical perception for a variety of applications. The Department will be responsible for carrying out the studies of psychological perception of Wagnerian leitmotifs.
Queen Mary University of London
The Electronic Engineering and Computer Science department at Queen Mary, like Goldsmiths, is very much involved in the MIR community and will contribute expertise in developing MIR technologies.
Oxford Music Faculty
The Music Faculty at Oxford University will be the main centre for the Wagner leitmotif studies and provides a rich history of musicological expertise.
Oxford e-Research Centre
The Oxford e-Research Centre (based at Oxford University) is a world centre for understanding and developing Semantic Web technologies and will also be responsible for much of the digital infrastructure on which the rest of the project's work will depend.
Lancaster University
The Lancaster Institute for the Contemporary Arts houses a research active music department and will be responsible for shepherding the mini-projects in which ideas explored in the project will be tested within the larger musicological community.
Utrecht University
Frans Wiering at Utrecht University has been a strong voice for sound musicological grounding in the MIR community since that community's inception in the late 1990s.
