On the evening of 3 October, the winner of the 2019 ENCATC Research Award on Cultural Policy and Cultural Management will be announced to an international audience of researchers, academics, cultural professionals, policy makers, and media. In attendance will also be members of the Award’s international jury, as well as past Research Award winners.

Join this celebration of excellence in cultural management and cultural policy research making the most important contributions to inform policy making and benefit practitioners in the broad field of culture.

This prestigious recognition aims to stimulate academic research in the field of cultural policy and cultural management with an emphasis on its applied implications.

The ENCATC Award also has the ambition to contribute to the process of creating a network of scholars who are competent in doing comparative research projects in cultural policy and cultural management.
