The Norwegian Academy of Music is granted a Centre for Excellence in Music Performance Education for the period 2014–2023, by the name CEMPE.

CEMPE is a catalyst for knowledge development on learning and teaching in higher music education. Through projects, networks and innovative experiments, the centre explores teaching models, work methods and educational content for students who are to meet the music community of tomorrow.

Centre for Excellence in Music Performance Education

Status as a Centre for Excellence is awarded to higher education institutions that can demonstrate innovation and outstanding quality in their existing study programmes. The aim of the scheme is to gain new knowledge and experience that can also benefit other institutions, nationally and internationally.

The Norwegian Agency for Quality Assurance in Education (NOKUT) has until 2018 operated the scheme, which was established by the Ministry of Education and Research in 2010. From January 2019 Diku has the responsibility for operating the scheme.
