Many creators, designers, artists and decision makers in the creative sector feel the desire to add in-depth knowledge and tools to their professional experience. Linking practical, hands-on knowledge to scientific research is of great importance to improve the quality and impact of creative work. However, there are many hurdles between the desire and it’s actual implementation. PhDO addresses these and connects people with the same ambitions with people who are doing it.

PhDO consists of networking events: both for individuals in the creative sector, and for people working in research and development. The network aims to develop realistic insights in the process of preparing, applying, setting up & carrying out research in the Creative Sector. At the same time, it will provide a podium to present research results to a relevant audience.

If you are interested, please take part in the network on LinkedIn and check the Events section. PhDO is an initiative of Waag Society and Arne Hendriks. Founding partners are NWO and IIP Create.

This project is made possible by a subsidy from the Creative Industries Fund NL.

Duration of the project: 
01-05-2011 to 01-05-2014
