Orpheus Institute engages in Erasmus+ strategic partnership for higher education (2018-2021)

The Orpheus Institute and eight other European institutions join forces in a 3-year multi-disciplinary Erasmus+ project. The strategic partnership project "Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates" was awarded funding from the Erasmus+ programme of the European Union.

Advancing Supervision for Artistic Research Doctorates aims to improve doctoral education at art universities. It addresses doctoral supervision as the core component in doctoral education, proposing a balanced set of measures to improve supervision on a practical level (addressing institutions and students), a strategic level (addressing membership organisations), and on an advocacy level (addressing stakeholders and policy makers). The members of the project consortium, led by the Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, come from all artistic fields (fine arts, media arts, performative arts, architecture and design, music, art theory) ensuring a transnational and transdisciplinary perspective of supervision in artistic research.

The Orpheus Institute has several years of experience on this topic by coordinating the docARTES doctoral programme and is looking forward to the results of this partnership.
