The objective of an artistic doctoral programme is the realisation of a research project, in which artistic and research methods refer to each other, and in which the results of the research are comprehensible and communicable on both levels. Fundamental to this is that the research project employs its own artistic praxis as a central focus. Research questions arise from the art, knowledge, and experience of artists, and feed back into them. Artistic research is often interdisciplinary but is fundamentally research for the arts, through the arts, and using the means of the arts.
In the artistic doctoral programme, areas of research may be chosen from the following fields of research:

the Paris Lodron University, Salzburg; the University of Art and Design, Linz; Bern University of the Arts (Switzerland) and the University for Music und the Performing Arts, Vienna
