>European Cultural Foundation
>Cultural Policy Research Award (2007)
>for applied comparative cultural policy research
>Europeâs Cultural Diversity in Focus
>The main aim of the Cultural Policy Research Award (CPRA) is to stimulate
>academic research in the field of cultural policy. The overall area covered
>by the award is applied comparative cultural policy research. Emphasis is
>placed on research which analyses various aspects of cultural diversity in
>Europe and which seeks to inform policymaking and benefit practitioners
>active in the field.
>Proposed research projects must focus on matters related to the challenges
>of cultural diversity. Proposals may tackle this highly topical issue
>affecting contemporary Europe at three levels: a)
>locally/regionally/nationally; b) at European level; and c) globally, in
>relation to its impact on European cultural development. The term
>âresearch in cultural diversityâ is used inclusively to refer to
>cultural policies, education and training, civil society activities,
>aspects of foreign and security policies, aspects of migration, enlargement
>and European neighbourhood policies. However, a clear emphasis must be
>placed on the role of arts and culture in this context.
>In exploring the role of arts and culture at a time of increased
>heterogeneity, the research project must address the political and cultural
>urgency of diversity within our societies and within Europe. It must
>provide new insights and suggest practical policy orientations and/or
>recommendations for decision-makers and thinkers (new policy solutions and
>proposals of new instruments and/or procedures which will create favourable
>conditions for cultural diversity).
>Priority will be given to evaluative, comparative and action-research
>projects which cover the European or macro-regional space. The research
>outcomes should contain relevant policy proposals for systemic and
>structural changes, or innovative ideas for rethinking cultural diversity
>as a resource in the current European context.
>Young academics, researchers and policymakers (aged 35 or under) are
>eligible for the âŹ10,000 award. Applications should be submitted between
>20 December 2006 and 1 May 2007 through the online application form on the
>CPR Award website. Before applying, candidates are strongly advised to
>consult the website for advice on how to prepare their applications.
>The winner of the CPR Award will be announced in summer 2007.
