Young Cultural Policy Researchers Forum
The European Cultural Foundation, ECF and the European Network on Arts and Cultural Management and Cultural Policy Education, ENCATC have launched the call for applications for the 7th Young Cultural Policy Researchers (YCPR) Forum. Aimed at providing young/early career cultural policy researchers with the opportunity to meet fellow researchers, share their experiences and analyse topical research issues regarding content and methodology, the YCPR Forum will be held in Brussels, Belgium, on 4-5 November 2013. The Forum will bring together 45 promising young cultural policy researchers and PhD students drawn from a wide range of countries from across Europe and beyond. They will be joined by renowned cultural policy academics, researchers and experts from around Europe to share their experience and provide guidance to those young researchers at the beginning of their careers.
This unique initiative in Europe aims to promote and stimulate trans-border exchanges among young/early career cultural policy researchers and on a long-term basis contribute to the development of a strong network of European cultural policy researchers. With the ambition to create strong connections and synergies between young and experienced researchers, the 2013 YCPR Forum will be immediately followed by the 21st ENCATC Annual Conference, to be organised in Brussels and Antwerp from 5-7 November 2013.
Young/early career researchers interested in participating in the YCPR Forum must submit their application by the 7 June 2013 deadline. Attendance of the YCPR Forum is free of charge. Nine young promising researchers will receive a travel and/or accommodation grant to attend the Forum in Brussels, chosen based on their research abstracts and submitted letters of recommendation.
To apply to attend the 7th YCPR Forum, please send the application and direct questions to Elizabeth Darley at firstname.lastname@example.org.
