RMIT selected for ADAPT-r partnership

​AEI congratulates RMIT on being selected as a partner for an EU-funded, three-year international research training network on Architecture, Design and Art Practice Training Research (ADAPT-r) which started on 1 January 2013. The European Commission agreed to fund RMIT’s participation as its contribution to the project was deemed essential. This decision recognises RMIT’s excellence in this area. 
RMIT will be working in partnership with the Catholic University of Leuven, Belgium; the University of Ljubljana, Slovenia; the Glasgow School of Art, Scotland; the Art School of Aarhus, Denmark, and the University of Westminster, United Kingdom.
ADAPT-r will train new researchers, increase supervisory capacity and partner with the private sector in research projects that allow for real world testing of the research and real world training.  This is significant work which will be of interest in Australia and Europe.
The project also marks the first time that Australia will participate in a so-called Initial Training Network as part of the mobility programme of the EU’s Framework Programme for Research.
