Kultura Nova conducts diverse research and other activities that pertain to research and evaluation work in order to get an adequate insight into the needs of the civil sector in culture in Croatia.

In the cultural system in general, as well as in the part that relates to the civil sector in culture, there is a need for an analytical foundation that would serve as the basis for analysis and further rethinking of ways of improving the system as a whole. Hence, it is necessary to execute comprehensive research and evaluation reflections in culture. This will then produce information based on which it will be possible to learn, make decisions and generate data for further actions, new thinking and interpretations of existing roles and significance of culture. Kultura Nova conducts diverse research and other activities that pertain to research and evaluation work in order to get an adequate insight into the needs of the civil sector in culture and to be able to actively contribute to the creation of longterm strategies in the fields of culture and civil society and decision making based on relevant indicators, factual situation and arguments that are derived from research work and recommendations. This way, the Foundation shall contribute to better understanding of the complexity of this field and to diminishing of the lack of understanding between particular sectors (public, private and civil) and shall create a basis for the development and improvement of the Foundation's activities within the frameworks of the Support programme and Development programmes and projects. Currently the Foundation conducts research on the working conditions of Croatian civil society organizations in contemporary arts and culture, and research on education in culture.
