Monday 21 October

The first preseminars will run parallel 10.00-11.00

1) Collaboration with festivals
Location: Auditorium Knut Knaus

University of Bergen (UiB) has a focus on research and innovation through knowledge clusters, and The Grieg Academy has been working in an informal music cluster together with several festivals and orchestras in Bergen. We are now looking into how to take this one step further, so we can fully benefit from synergisms already experienced by other clusters at UiB, such as Media City Bergen and the Norwegian Media Cluster. In a panel discussion by Grieg Academy staff and external partners we will show, tell and explore this together with Nordplusmusic delegates.
Chair: Dagfinn Bach

2) Nordplus practicalities
Location: PPU room (2nd floor)

What is the minimum length of express mobility? How are teacher mobility grants calculated? What possibilities does Nordplus funding offer? We will walk through the preconditions for getting funding as well the regulations for filling grant agreements, calculating grants and administrating responsibilities.
Chairs: Hanneleen Pihlak and Lena Arstam
