The Centre for Cultural Policy Research (KPC for its initials in Swedish) is a research centre at the University of Borås. KPC's work is based in the university's vision of Science for the Professions. KPC seeks to play a key role in the growing field of research and practice in the field of cultural politics in the broadest sense.
KPC has three stated areas of focus for its activities:
KPC has a reference group of experts and representatives from the practice field so as to anchor the work in practice and function as a link to decision makers and practitioners. An important task of the reference group is to identify and propose relevant areas and problems to the centre.
KPC is a research-strategic hub for research relevant to cultural policy at both the regional and national levels.
KPC is a natural partner for municipalities, regions/counties, and state administrations as well as organisations involved with research and development in the cultural field.
