The Research Networking Day (RND) is an exchange platform for students and researchers from different European graduate and postgraduate programmes traversing the fields of audio, arts, media, design, and related theoretical disciplines. Selected through an open call, the RND 2020 participants will each give short, 10 minute presentations on their current research and ideas, which address the scope of CTM 2020’s Liminal theme.

This RND edition will take place in collaboration with UdK Berlin University of the Arts, the German Association for Music Business and Music Culture Research (GMM), and Humboldt University. Admission is free.
