The ambition of the research platform SIMM is to contribute 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. From 2018 on, the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London already started the first SIMM doctoral research programme, in a close collaboration with – and with the support of – the platform. SIMM offers a stipend for a Colombian and a British PhD-student at the Guildhall School.
