The University of Music and Performing Arts Vienna will organize the 8th edition of the conference 'Vienna Music Business Research Days' from the 12th to the 14th of September 2017.

The aim of this event is to bring together scholars from all disciplines and interested music business professionals in Vienna every year in order to present their findings and exchange ideas about it.

Music business research is a new scientific approach at the intersection of economic, artistic, especially musical, cultural, social, legal, technological developments that aims at a better understanding of the creation/production, dissemination/distribution and reception/consumption of the cultural good music. It follows an inter-disciplinary research and teaching approach that is characterized by methodological diversity.
