A unique opportunity for young cultural researchers seeking to make a break into the research field and contribute to the production of new knowledge: the annual Cultural Policy Research Award (CPRA) is now open for applications.
With the Award, ECF, the Riksbankens Jubileumfond and ENCATC aim to encourage and enable cultural policy researchers to undertake comparative and cross-cultural applied research. The Award is devoted to research projects which shed light on contemporary European cultural issues and challenges. The CPRA prize money is 10,000 euros and is awarded to cultural policy researchers aged up to 35 years old, from wider Europe. Nominees are selected by an international jury of eminent European cultural policy researchers.
Applications for the 2012 Award must be submitted by 7 May 2012, through the online application form on the CPRA website. More information on timelines and eligibility can also be found there.
CPRA is part of a programme package in support of young cultural policy researchers. Visit this page for more information on ECF’s advocacy activities.
