On 20-21 October, the 5th HarMA+ Transnational Project Meeting took place in the Belgian capital, Brussels, hosted by the AEC in collaboration with ARES – Académie de recherche et d’enseignement supérieur. The programme included a recap of the project status, progress on the developments of the intellectual outputs and a shared feedback evaluation of the HarMA+ Students Training Week 2022 organised by the Estonian Academy of Music and Theater in Tallinn.

AEC, as coordinator of communication and dissemination of the project outcomes, presented the first results of all communications actions carried out since the beginning of the project, as well as the impact the project has had among AEC member institutions. The presence of HarMA+ at AEC regular events and usual dissemination channels (i.e. monthly newsletters, social media) has been key for the wide dissemination of the project activities at the international level.

Furthermore, the meeting served to prepare the upcoming HarMA+ Final conference, which will take place on 19-21 April 2023 at the Akademia Muzyczna im Stanislawa Moniuszky w Gdansku in Poland, in the frame of the HarMA International Seminar Event organised jointly by Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles. The third edition of the seminar will focus on internationalisation, digitisation, innovative teaching and e-learning practices. Registrations for music theory faculties (harmony, music analysis, ear training teachers) from HMEIs involved in the Erasmus+ Programme are now open on the following link: http://harma.eu.com/register-form.

HarMA+ is a strategic partnership funded by the European Commission’s Erasmus+ programme and coordinated by Conservatoire royal de Bruxelles.
