The international platform SIMM schedules an exceptional collaboration with universities and university colleges in and outside Belgium.
SIMM is rapidly becoming an inter-faculty and inter-university research platform.
The inter-faculty and inter-university establishment of SIMM is in this specific research area considered internationally as a unique initiative. We are designing a multi-faceted approach and accompaniment of doctoral and post-doctoral research projects that have been welcomed in research seminars proposed by the SIMM-platform since 2018.
There are some studies on the social impact of art on people (in vulnerable situations). The added value of SIMM is the ‘association’ of the various disciplines and the fact that research can thus be bundled and can be approached from different perspectives. This we expect can strengthen the validity of the results.
