EU Commission Funds two Erasmus+ Masters at the University of Salzburg

In 2018, the European Commission will sponsor 42 Master's programs in Erasmus+ across all scientific disciplines. Five of these programs are coordinated by Austrian universities, including two by the University of Salzburg: Digital Communication Leadership and Digital Earth.

Die Universität Salzburg erhält 6,2 Millionen Euro für die Durchführung der beiden Joint-Study Masterstudiengänge.

Das Programm Copernicus Master in Digital Earth wird zum ersten Mal gefördert und knüpft an das bestehende Studium Applied Geoinformatics unter der Leitung von Josef Strobl an.

Schon zum zweiten Mal fördert die EU Kommission das Joint-Masterstudium Digital Communication Leadership (DC Lead) am Fachbereich Kommunikationswissenschaft. Koordinator Sergio Sparviero zeigt sich erfreut: „Unser gute Arbeit in den ersten drei Jahren hat sich gelohnt. Die EU Kommission spricht uns ihr Vertrauen für weitere sechs Jahre aus.“ Seit 2015 hat DC Lead fast 50 Master-Studentinnen und -Studenten betreut. Die ersten werden im September 2018 ihr Studium abschließen.

DC Lead ist ein Vorzeigeprojekt für die Internationalisierung an der Universität Salzburg geworden. Im Einklang mit den Förderrichtlinien der EU stammt die große Mehrheit der Studierenden aus Ländern außerhalb Europas. An dem kompetitiven Auswahlverfahren haben sich für jeden Studienplatz zuletzt 34 Studierende beworben. 2018 erhielten Studierende aus folgenden Ländern ein EU-gefördertes Stipendium: Brasilien, Ecuador, Indien, Kasachstan, Kuba, Nigeria, Pakistan und Usbekistan, sowie aus der EU Deutschland, den Niederlanden und Rumänien.

DC Lead stattet die Studierenden mit den Kenntnissen und Fähigkeiten für Führungspositionen in der digitalen Kommunikationswelt aus. Der Fachbereich Kommunikationswissenschaft der Universität Salzburg arbeitet eng mit den Universitäten Aalburg (Dänemark) und Brüssel (VUB, Belgien) zusammen, die zusammen die Joint-Master Degrees vergeben. An DC Lead sind als akademische Partner darüber hinaus die Universitäten Fudan (Shanghai, VR China), QUT (Brisbane, Australien), Ghana Telecom University (Ghana), UCLA (Los Angeles, USA) und Bahia (Brasilien), sowie zahlreiche Industriepartner beteiligt. Programmkoordinator ist Prof. Dr. Sergio Sparviero, Direktor des Programmes ist Fachbereichsleiter Prof. Dr. Josef Trappel.

    This SWEET SPOT takes place together with the Salzburg composer, experimental musician and sound artist, Werner Raditschnig. The series SWEET SPOT sees itself as a forum for both classical and completely new productions of electroacoustic music in Salzburg. In a lounge atmosphere, new pieces, as well as "classics" of the genre are heard and discussed, accompanied by a short introduction and the opportunity to discuss what listeners have heard.
    In this workshop, the eye should play an important role next to the ear. Using exercises, the participants will approach the subject in small groups and form visual, as well as acoustic sound.
    The relatively young democracy of Poland, whose political climate has intensified considerably since the last elections, is also moving increasingly to the fore. Politically critical leaders of representative cultural organisations have been, and continue to be, replaced by the new administration, while independent creative artists appear to be able to find niches that so far or already live outside the country.
    The workshop aims to examine the musicality of the body and, vice versa, the corporeality of music from a choreographic perspective. This approach corresponds with the extension of the concept of music, as well as the questioning of performance traditions in the context of New Music, which also puts a stronger emphasis on the body.
