ENCATC, the European network on cultural management and policy, welcomes applications for its 4th Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management. Deadline to apply is 5 June!
The ENCATC Research 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 policy making and benefit practitioners active in the broad field of culture.
This prestigious recognition aims to stimulate academic research in the field of cultural policy and cultural management with an emphasis on its applied implications. The ENCATC Award also has the ambition to contribute to the process of creating a network of scholars who are competent in doing comparative research projects in cultural policy and cultural management.
The ENCATC Award targets emerging researchers in the field of cultural policy and cultural management up from Europe and the rest of the world.
Granted each year, the Award consists of the translation of the winning PhD thesis into English 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.
