Cultural Policy Research Award

A unique opportunity for young cultural researchers seeking to make a break into the research field and contribute to the production of new knowledge: the annual Cultural Policy Research Award (CPRA) is now open for applications.

With the Award, the European Cultural Foundation, the Riksbankens Jubileumfond and ENCATC aim to encourage and enable cultural policy researchers to undertake comparative and cross-cultural applied research. The Award is devoted to research projects which shed light on contemporary European cultural issues and challenges. The CPRA prize money is 10,000 euros and is awarded to cultural policy researchers aged up to 35 years old, from wider Europe. Nominees are selected by an international jury of eminent European cultural policy researchers.

Applications for the 2011 Award must be submitted between 16 February and 30 May 2011, through the online application form on the CPRA website. More information on timelines and eligibility can also be found there.

About the Cultural Policy Research Award

The Cultural Policy Research Award was launched in 2004 by the European Cultural Foundation (ECF) and the Riksbankens Jubileumsfond, and since 2008, is developed in partnership with ENCATC.

Designed to foster academic and applied cultural policy research and to explore issues at stake in contemporary Europe, the Cultural Policy Research Award aims to contribute to new competence building among young scholars in comparative cultural policy research.
