The National Film School at IADT has successfully secured in excess of €1.1 million in funding to explore and develop an EU University for the Film & Media Arts.

The European Universities initiative is a key milestone for the EU in building the Universities of the future, in promoting European values and identity and in making a leap forward in the quality, inclusion and competitiveness of European higher education.

In addition to IADT, the Department of Cinema and Media Arts at Lusófona University in Lisbon leads the consortium with full partners in Belgium and Hungary and associate partners in Estonia, Finland and Germany.  Overall, the consortium secured €5 million.

Together, these institutions have a common objective of promoting high-level education and research activities in Film and Media Arts.  The consortium integrates four institutions with strong expertise in Film and Media Arts education.  All have a common internationalization ambition and a long track record of past collaborations that include more than a decade of expertise in the development of European “Erasmus Mundus” joint master degrees.
