ProjectCulture KICK

Culture KICK

Culture KICK is a university-based, cross-disciplinary network that involves partners from Norway, Sweden, Denmark, Finland and Iceland. The network connects researchers with a broad range of expertise, including humanities and social sciences, media and information technologies, as well as arts and design and a solid experience of collaborations with cultural heritage institutions and SMEs in creative industry.

Culture KICK focuses primarily on addressing the challenges raised by the need to establish a sustainable framework for R & D-based collaborations with the relevant sectors of cultural heritage and creative industry. For this purpose, the concept and methodology of knowledge transfer will be developed and piloted within the Culture Kick network and disseminated in the NODEM community.

Culture KICK will tackle these issues by using a participatory approach based on existing Scandinavian research projects that triangulate the sectors involved – creative industry, cultural heritage institutions and research. By way of exchange of methods and approaches in these ongoing research projects, Culture KICK will establish sustainable structures for cooperation that will integrate research-based practices for knowledge transfer with the specific needs and requirements of the private sector and SMEs.
