• facilitates the Doctorate in the Arts, by ways of administrative support and by acting as a production unit
• stimulates all forms of co-operation between researchers of the University Association Brussels (UAB) and collaboration with external partners from both the artistic and academic field

The Arts Platform stimulates and facilitates artistic research, specifically the Doctorates in the Arts, conducted within the University Association Brussels and guarantees that each PhD project is embedded in an adequate research environment.
