Artistic Doctorates in Europe

Artistic Doctorates in Europe: Third cycle provision in Dance and Performance (ADiE) project is investigating Practice as Research (PaR) inquiries within research level degrees in Dance and Performance.


With eight leading organisations from across the UK and Scandinavia the partnership seeks to support, substantiate and enhance the delivery and impact of these degrees within the cultural arts sector and beyond. This three-year project aims to make a difference – enhancing experiences and helping both universities and the professional dance sector to come together to understand and promote the benefit of doctoral work in our field.

The ADiE research project will review the experiences and expectations of artistic doctoral candidates in different countries to develop guidelines which will help universities and arts organisation’s better supervise and support future candidates.

ADiE is in partnership with Professor of Artistic Research Leena Rouhiainen / University of the Arts Helsinki, Finland.
