Research Programme on the Culture and Media Sector (KULMEDIA)

The programme seeks to generate new, research-based knowledge about the connections between the role of cultural life and the media in society and the changing economic and technological framework underlying this. Especially important are the far-reaching changes that digitalisation entails. These changes affect and are affected by cultural and media policy, which thus also becomes an object of research under the programme.

The programme will promote high-quality research of relevance for policy development, public administration and stakeholders in the culture and media sector. The programme will generate knowledge about:

  • the changing technological and economic framework underlying the production, distribution and use of media content, art and cultural expression of all types;
  • knowledge about the changing technological and economic framework underlying the establishment, management, accessibility to and dissemination of collections in institutions such as museums, archives and libraries – Norway’s cultural memory;
  • how cultural and media policy itself influences the framework and role in society of these areas.
