5th ENCATC Research Session | CPRA Award | calls
ENCATC announces a call for abstracts from academics, researchers, trainers and cultural professionals for papers to be presented at the 5th Annual ENCATC Research Session in Brno, Czech Republic, as part of the Annual Conference.
ALSO: don't forget the deadline of 30 June for applications for the 11th Cultural Policy Research Award
The 11th Cultural Policy Research Award is bestowed upon the best recent PhD Thesis on comparative cultural policies or management topics presented by a young researcher.
This prestigious recognition aims to stimulate academic research in the field of cultural policy and management to explore, through comparative and cross-cultural research, issues at stake in contemporary Europe, Asia and the Americas, and possibly anticipate new cultural policy orientations, as well as to contribute to the process of creating an "infrastructure", a network of scholars who are competent in doing comparative research projects in cultural policy and management issues.
The Award is open to young researchers from European countries (Council of Europe Member States), Asia and the Americas. Research applicants must have defended the PhD Thesis between the dates of 01/01/2013 and 30/06/2014. All the PhD’s summaries must be presented in English although the original version can be in another language.
On 18 September in Brno, Czech Republic, in the framework of the 22nd ENCATC Annual Conference "New Challenges for the Arts: Is it just about money?" (17-19 September 2014), a selected group of academics, researchers, trainers and cultural professionals from Europe and around the world will present papers at the 5th Annual ENCATC Research Session.
This is an excellent opportunity for other academics, researchers, arts and cultural operators, students, policy makers, and artists to get the latest research developments, gain new insights and perspectives in the field of cultural management and cultural policy, and dialogue with leading experts in their field.
This ENCATC event is one of the 3 selected projects of the ASEF Creative Networks programme this year. It is part of a series of events aimed at capacity building for cultural managers and researchers.
