The 'Florence Principles', designed version published

07 April 2017

Now available in digital and printed version!

We are happy to announce that the new design of the 'Florence Principles' position paper has been published both print and digital versions this week. ELIA has presented the position paper on the Doctorate in the Arts at the ELIA Biennial in December 2016.

After the feedback was collected, the partners endorsed it : AEC, Cumulus, Cilect, EAAE and SAR. The paper now is a newly designed booklet format and ready to be distributed!

The launch of the new publication coincides with the first meeting of the ELIA Representative Board that was elected at the ELIA Biennial on Florence. Amongst present, is Andrea Braidt from the Academy of Fine Art Vienna, who is chair of the Artistic Research working group at ELIA. 

The 'Florence Principles' is formulated as a point of reference for policymakers, university leaders, curriculum designers and research funding agencies. It is addressed to universities of art and science alike, helping the former to secure recognition for their endeavors (with national funding bodies, legislature, etc.) and helping the latter to learn about the research developments within the art university sector.
