With the aim to anticipate the future and better understand the past, ENCATC promotes access to cutting-edge research in the fields of cultural management and cultural policy. ENCATC publishes and widely disseminates research in cultural management and cultural policy to ensure that research feeds into policy making and decision makers have a better understanding of cultural policy and educational issues and ways to address them.
ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management
The ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management was launched in 2014 by the European network on cultural management and cultural policy education, ENCATC, to reward the best recently published PhD thesis presented by a young researcher.
Young Researcher's Forum
From 2008 - 2013 ENCATC organised an annual Forum for young researchers in partnership with the European Cultural Foundation (ECF). In 2014, ENCATC and ECF set out to encourage the participation of young/early career cultural policy researchers at the Annual ENCATC Research Session through travel bursaries.
Since its creation in 2010, over 95 authors have presented their work, coming from across Europe, but also Australia, Brazil, Japan, Malawi, Singapore, Turkey and the United States. ENCATC’s dedication to sharing, exchanging and reflecting on these topics proves once more the network’s aim to strengthen the European research area and to build knowledge societies.
