This Project finds its overall framework in the European Opera Academy (EOA), a cross-border collaborative initiative launched by Conservatorium Maastricht in 2016 which includes 14 Academies of Music (HEI) in Europe.

Based on the innovative concept of shared education, the vision of this project is to trigger innovation in the opera field in Europe and beyond. EOALAB aims to reinforce the link between education, training and labour market through innovative student-centred teaching and learning approaches, by strengthening cross-border collaboration and exchange of best practices to make opera training laboratories for artistic experimentation and employability both for students and young professionals.
