With the Award, the European Cultural Foundation (ECF), the Riksbankens Jubileumsfond (RJ), and the European Network of Cultural Administration Training Centres (ENCATC) aim to encourage and enable cultural policy researchers to undertake comparative and cross-cultural applied research. The award is devoted to research projects that shed light on contemporary European cultural issues and challenges. The CPRA prize is €10,000 awarded to cultural policy researchers up to age 35 from wider Europe. Nominees are selected by an international jury of eminent European cultural policy researchers.
