Work package 1: Graduate Schools

Expanding existing programmes and networks

Coordinator: Mick Wilson (GradCAM)

This work package builds on the existing EARN network, bringing together Graduate Schools, National Fellowship Programmes, Research Centres and similar initiatives already fully active in doctoral research in the arts. The ambition of this sub-network is to develop excellent 3rd cycle (collaborative) programmes and research centres at world-class level.

The working group facilitates three sub-network meetings and a pilot study, systematically describing collaborative organizational structures at 3rd cycle level, also including cross-disciplinary models based on experience from other sciences and in interaction with innovative creative industry. It pilots the development of at least two joint modules or programmes.  It introduces innovative cross-disciplinary research concepts working from the principle of the knowledge triangle in the creative disciplines as currently developing in Europe, combining research, education and technological, social and artistic innovation. It will input in the communication, validation and advocacy actions of the Academic Network and in all three project conferences.
