ENCATC has launched the call for applications for the 2nd ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management.

ENCATC , the European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres, is a European network of higher educational institutions and training organisations dealing with cultural management.

This annual award is granted to a recently published PhD thesis exploring, through comparative and cross-cultural research, issues at stake in the field.

The award seeks to reward researchers who take a step from an evaluative (descriptive) approach to comparative applied research.

In addition, the ENCATC Award goes to a PhD thesis that can inform policymaking and benefit practitioners active across the 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 (up to 35 years of age) in the field of cultural policy and cultural management 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 that will be organised in Brussels in November 2015 alongside the European Culture Forum.

The deadline to submit the documents is 30 June 2015.

ENCATC is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Union.
