The organization of series of lectures and seminars given by researchers working with or associated to SIMM are currently being discussed with the Barenboim-Said Academy in Berlin (, and the Accademia Teatro alla Scala in Milan ( In these lectures and seminars critical research on socio-artistic music projects will be presented. The Barenboim-Said Academy is the now world famous initiative of the Jewish conductor and pianist Daniel Barenboim (artist-ambassador of Music Fund) and the Palestinian nationalist Eduard Said. It is a musical education in Berlin for talented musicians from Arab countries, Israel, Germany and Spain.  Our plan is to organize the coming years such lecture series in collaboration with these and other partners in different countries in order to broaden the SIMM network and to enable researchers closely or loosely linked to SIMM to give lectures at interesting locations.
