CA2REPLUS / Partners

To support and develop the CA²RE conferences with the  CA²RE+ meta-level discourse and Erasmus+ strategic encouragement, the partnership gathers the most active  members of the CA²RE community.

The CA²RE+ Strategic Partnership of 11 outstanding HE organisations and associations from 8 EU countries is running for 3 years. Its backbone is a series of biannual international and intercultural INTENSIVE STUDY PROGRAMMES for doctoral candidates, guided by experienced evaluators from participating universities and invited experts. The doctoral work-in-progress is evaluated through presentations, performances, exhibitions and critical discussions, following the iterative CA²RE+ development steps: observation, sharing, comparison, reflection, reformulation and recommendation. To introduce new experts with low evaluation experience into the process, JOINT STAFF TRAINING is developed at each venue.
