The Recommendations for Action centre around requirements for the artistic doctorate in dance and performance. We focus in particular on doctorates that situate creative embodied practice as the core mode of inquiry and as part of the manifest outcomes of research.

The recommendations emerge from research conducted by the Artistic Doctorates in Europe: Third cycle education in Dance and Performance project (ADiE, 2016-2019) ( ADiE is an Erasmus+ funded partnership between eight organisations across the UK, Sweden and Finland. The partnership undertook surveys, gathered case studies and curated events for stakeholders to share, reflect upon and enhance the experience and significance of doctoral education.

The recommendations revolve around creating collaborative research environments, discipline-specific training, supervisory and examination processes and enhancing impact. Throughout we place a particular emphasis on the relationship between universities and the cultural sector in an effort to promote connectivity for candidates and to advocate artistic doctoral research within professional dance and performance contexts. The recommendations are underpinned by commitments to an ethos of care and the fostering of plurality.
