New funding for Masters that combine creativity and technology

The European Commission has launched an experimental call for proposals to design advanced, interdisciplinary modules for Master degrees amounting to €1.5 million. The modules should combine arts and ICT with entrepreneurial skills and business exposure.

Creative industries are experiencing a significant skills gap at the crossing of creativity and technology. This call, funded through Creative Europe, hopes to endorse an interdisciplinary approach in Masters and university courses by nurturing cross-sectorial curricula that combine technology with art.

The call will support higher education institutions in the design and implementation of pioneering modules to be included in existing arts, culture, science, engineering, technology and/or other relevant masters.

The deadline for applications is 10 October 2017.

More information about the call is available on European Commission website.
