SIMM is organizing and accompanying international annual ‘SIMM-posia’, lectures as well as seminars for scholars, practitioners of music projects in social and community work, funders and governmental representatives, who have in common their interest to do research, or to welcome or support research on the role music making may play in social and community work.

The ambition of the research platform SIMM is to contribute the coming years (2017-2020) to preparing the terrain for the future creation of one or more international research centre(s) able to accompany and certify doctoral and post-doctoral ​research in this field.

Building on the incubation support given since 2015 by the University and the University College of Ghent, SIMM is from September 2017 on – thanks to the financial input from the Belgian Baillet-Latour Fund – established as an independent international scholarly association (asbl/vzw/ltd), with its head office in Brussels.
