ENCATC, the European network on cultural management and policy*, launches the call for applications for the 3rd ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management (the JRC is a member of the Steering Committee of the Award).
This annual award is granted to a recently published PhD thesis exploring, through comparative and cross-cultural research, issues at stake and taking a step from evaluative (descriptive) to comparative applied research. In addition, the ENCATC Award is rewarded to a PhD thesis that can inform policymaking and benefit practitioners active in the broad field of culture.
Granted each year, the Award consists of the translation of the winning PhD thesis into English or French and its publication in the Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education Book Series, a new series of publications specialising in topics related to cultural management and cultural policy headed by ENCATC. The international dissemination of the ENCATC Book Series is ensured by Peter Lang, an international publishing group. The ENCATC Award targets emerging researchers in the field of cultural policy and cultural management up to 35 years of age from Europe and the rest of the world.
How to apply
The deadline to submit the documents outlined in the call is 30 June 2016.
Representing the JRC on the award's scientific committee is Dorota Weziak-Bialowolska. The committee oversees the strategic direction of the Cultural Policy and Cultural Management Research Award.
