Today on 26 February 2019, ENCATC launches the call for applications for the 2019 ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management.
The annual Research Award is granted to a recently published doctoral thesis exploring topical issues at stake and taking a step from evaluative (descriptive) to innovative and internationally oriented research designs. In addition, it is rewarded to a doctoral thesis that can inform policy making and benefit practitioners in the broad field of culture.
Granted each year, the Award consists of the translation of the winning doctoral thesis into English and its publication in the Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education Book Series, a 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 Research Award was launched in 2014 to reward the best and most relevant recently published doctoral thesis presented by an emerging researcher from anywhere in Europe and the rest of the world.
The schedule for the 2019 call for ENCATC Research Award applications is as follows:
- 1 May 2019: Closing date for applications at midnight (Brussels time)
