In the days of Erasmus and Thomas More the humanists would move round Europe in order to further their learning.

The following criteria will be assessed:
The CoPeCo master’s degree combines a well nigh individual response to a student’s artistic research project with trans-disciplinary teaching.
The selection stage is the time when the cohort of master’s students is created. Each group will consist of young artists destined to follow the same course, who are from diverse musical origins and horizons but whose artistic profiles are compatible (composers, performers or a combination of the two). They will all have experience of contemporary musical composition and will need the ability to use electronic music equipment and the new media to express themselves, whatever their own chosen specialisation.
The priority given to cooperation
Each cohort of students will move on together from one semester to the next and will thus be induced to work together. This, in turn, will improve their ability to collaborate with a view to creating.
Forming a network for career development
The itinerant structure of the master’s gives students the means to form a high-level network both within the group and outside it as the course proceeds and the students meet people through their work, notably due to each conservatoire’s network of contacts with the professional environment of musical creation and diffusion. Students on the CoPeCo master’s course are taught to develop their knowledge, skills and the ability to communicate effectively with the people they will need to frequent in their future professional lives.
Financing and sponsorship partners
The 4 institution consortium is currently seeking new European programmes and private funding to support the mobility of CoPeCo students and to build up a stock of teaching material and instruments that will be made available to the itinerant group.
