The Research School at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts

Doctoral students at HDK are part of the Research School at the Faculty of Fine, Applied and Performing Arts together with doctoral students from Valand Academy and the Academy of Music and Drama. The Research School arranges common courses and activities for the doctoral students.
The combination of a common Research School on faculty level and subject specific studies create a research environment where the research questions and processes of each subject contribute to new insights. This way we create a new platform for reflections within the artistic research.
