About the Project
Music4Change prioritizes sustainability in music research and education through innovations in teaching and learning. Through a transnational European alliance of universities and NGOs, the project will energize the field of doctoral studies by increasing interdisciplinarity, digital competency, and cooperation between universities and the music sector.
The project will implement a new Curriculum for Change for PhD education offering open access digital resources and blended learning focusing on sustainability in and through music research.
Cross sector knowledge exchange will be fostered through innovations in Living Lab Workshop methodology. The Bridge Mentorship Scheme will be piloted to provide tailored support for diverse learner profiles and post study career paths.

Music4Change aims to make sustainability a core element in music research and education. The first of three annual International Research Schools will explore how equality, equity, and social justice are the foundation of sustainable cities and communities, and the ways musical systems and institutions must evolve to achieve such goals.
