In order to encourage research amongst its members, the International Committee for Education and Cultural Action created the Colette Dufresne-Tassé Award. It aims to underline the contribution to education and/or cultural action of the best empirical research report presented during its annual International Conference.
The award consists in a contribution of up to 400.00 Euros for covering the winner’s accommodation costs, the CECA Board or the conference organizers themselves, taking care (covering the costs) of the inscription fee. A month after having been informed, the winner must send to the CECA Secretary a copy of her/his ticket (air plane, train or bus) as a proof of her/his intentions to participate to the conference.
Note: CECA is not responsible for the travel expenses.
With the Colette Dufresne-Tassé Award, CECA is aiming at:
- Stimulating the research activity amongst its members;
- Improving the museum offer to its publics;
- Hastening the development of museum education and cultural action through fresh empirical data and new professional or research instruments.
To be eligible:
