TACK/Communities of Tacit Knowledge: Architecture and its Ways of Knowing’ is a newly funded Innovative Training Network, as part of the Marie Sklodowska-Curie Actions within the European Framework Programme Horizon 2020. Its aim is to train young researchers to understand the specific knowledge used by architects in the design of buildings and cities.
This network combines, for the first time, the expertise on tacit knowledge that has been developed at ten major academic institutions: ETH Zürich, Delft University of Technology, KTH Royal Institute of Technology, Oslo School of Architecture and Design, Bergische Universität Wuppertal, Politecnico di Milano, Academy of Fine Arts Vienna, University of Antwerp, University College London and Leibniz Universität Hannover.
Together with three leading cultural architectural institutions as well as nine distinguished architecture design offices, these will train a group of scholars to explore the very character of tacit knowledge and to better understand its potential in addressing new and pressing issues in the built environment. ‘TACK/Communities of Tacit Knowledge’ comprises 10 parallel PhD projects. Applications for fully funded PhD positions, located at the participating academic institutions, are invited within this 3-year Innovative Training Network. Each PhD project will explore a particular aspect of tacit knowledge in architecture and will become part of the wider international training programme on ‘Communities of Tacit Knowledge’, which will provide the opportunity to intensively exchange with other PhD candidates and with international faculty.
In addition to the academic experience, secondments will be provided by non-academic partners. Architectural offices from Belgium, Germany, the Netherlands, Italy, Norway, Austria and Sweden, will host a PhD candidate in their office for a five-month (part-time) architectural secondment. Three major European cultural institutes, active in the field of architecture, will also provide secondments, in which PhD candidates will become acquainted with methods of knowledge dissemination to a broader audience (curatorial tools), the impact of cultural heritage (archival tools) and of generating a public debate (rhetorical tools).
More information on the PhD terms of contract at the ten academic institutions, on specific themes that are addressed and on the secondments that will take place within this network, can be found on: https://tacit-knowledge-architecture.com/ .
