Engagement & Impact

By definition, many musical and cultural activities have a strongly public dimension.

At ICMuS this also goes for our musical research, whose impact often extends well beyond the immediate academic community.

Since the late 1990s we have made cultural and social well-being an explicit part of our agenda, and this is reflected not only the topics of our research, but also in the way we conduct it and in the range of our collaborators – not only other academic institutions but also with individuals, groups and organisations locally, nationally and internationally. Moreover, we aspire not only to share the fruits of our own research with others, but also to learn from their knowledge and experience. Hence, benefit, agency, and impact flow both ways.

Some examples of the impact of our work with non-academic partners can be found below.
