ENCATC is the leading European network on Cultural Management and Cultural Policy education. It is a membership NGO gathering over 100 members in 40 countries. ENCATC is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
ENCATC has launched the call for applications for the Second ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management. 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 ENCATC 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 based in Switzerland and operating throughout the world.
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.
An international Jury will evaluate the applications and select the winner who will be announced at the ENCATC Award Ceremony will be organised in Brussels in November 2015 alongside the European Culture Forum.
The deadline to submit the documents outlined in the call is 30 June 2015.
