Conference on the Internationalization of German Musikhochschulen

24-25. November 2017 in Dresden
The German Higher Music Education institutions (Musikhochschulen) have an excellent international reputation, a high mobility rate and represent a destination frequently requested by foreign students. At the same time, they are underrepresented in international projects and joint study programmes.

At the initiative of AEC, its member institutions from Cologne and Dresden and with the support of the German Academic Exchange Service (DAAD), this conference pursues the issue of what "Internationalization" means or might mean, with a particular focus on the topic of Artistic Research as a showcase example. In addition to this exemplary topic of the event, perspectives for future strategies on how to strengthen internationalization of German Music HEIs will be presented and discussed.

The primary target group of the conference are leaders from Higher Music Education institutions in the German-speaking countries, as well as musicologists and Musikhochschulen staff members who are committed to or interested in Artistic Research.

The conference is funded by the DAAD from grants from the German Foreign Ministry. Conference language will be German.
