Objectives

The EU4ART Alliance aims to bring together the higher education dimension of the European Education Area and the European Research Area, by developing an integrated and long-term joint strategy on artistic research and innovation, in line with the education strategies from the Erasmus+ pilot.

Our project has high goals, which we are working on in a multinational team at four university locations in Europe in various work packages.

Over the next three years, we aim to

  • raise our research profiles and boost opportunities for artistic and research collaborations both with the partners of our alliance and with local partners
  • promote a culture of research, leverage the academic excellence and strengthen the cooperation of our alliance partners
  • create twinning groups and strengthen collaboration regarding R&I centres as Fine Art & Research Labs or Schools in each partner academy, but also as a places and formats of exchange
  • execute outreach to society in order to empower artists and make artistic practice and results visible and relevant for societal discourse
"Additional funding through Horizon 2020 completes the initiative of EU4ART and is intended to open up new opportunities for joint artistic research, postgraduate qualification and the expansion to own European networks on artistic and academic level. I am particularly looking forward to the intercultural and interdisciplinary exchange among fellow thinkers."
