For a person for whom the furthest place ever travelled outside home is Bangalore, LIBA offered an amazing opportunity to live in a place- which is entirely new, known for its punctuality, loved for its automobiles – the land of no security guards in Malls – the land of Honest Ethical Bus Drivers. YES Deutschland! (In English: Germany) The Land of Chocolates – The Land of Ideas – The Land of Beers (In Deutsch – Bier). LIBA has an exchange programme with one of Germany’s Top Management Institutes (9th nationally and 2nd in the Bavarian Region) WFI School of Management from the Catholic University of Eichstätt-Ingolstadt; fondly addressed as WFI (‘V-fe’).
The Society for Education Music and Psychology Research (Sempre) was founded in 1972 and is the only international society to have a distinctive mission to promote research on the application of the social sciences of psychology and education to music. As part of SEMPRE's charitable status, we have a programme of awards to support research and its dissemination across the world. Within our award programme, the Lifetime Achievement Award is open to senior colleagues who are considered by the SEMPRE Trustees to have made an outstanding contribution to the field. Previous recipients are Rosamund Bourke (UK, 2005), Desmond Sergeant (UK, 2005), Alf Gabrielsson (Sweden, 2010) and Irène Deliège (Belgium, 2010).
