Throughout the duration of the Collaborative Art Partnership Programme the core activities – workshop, residency and commission – will be assessed through a parallel research and evaluation process.

CAPP has appointed Dr Susanne Bosch to deliver the research strand of CAPP. There will be a focus on formulating a research and evaluation process that is reflexive, that creates new possibilities in relation to evaluative frameworks for collaborative work, that remains alert to contemporary critiques with regard to research practices and that aligns the research and evaluation process with core aims of the partners at both a local level and within the larger project framework. By 2018 partners will be able to share and disseminate the research gathered over the course of the 4-year project.

The research will also produce key valuable resources for the collaborative arts sector across Europe.
