RITPART is a partnership project with the aim of connecting RITMO to world-leading research groups in USA, Canada and Japan.
The strategic partnerships with world-leading research groups at University of California, Berkeley, USA, McGill University, Canada, and Toyohashi University of Technology, Japan, will complement and strengthen RITMO in three core methodologies:
- Motion capture
- Eye tracking
These methods are key to reaching the vision behind RITMO, namely to reveal the basic cognitive mechanism(s) underlying human rhythm, using music, motion and audiovisual media as empirical points of departure. The research will be based on the combined perspectives of the humanities, cognitive neuroscience, social sciences and informatics, including a large variety of theoretical and methodological approaches
The project will strengthen the internationalization in RITMO and will help us develop into a truly world-leading hub for research and research education in the fields in question.
