The STARTS Residencies Days took place at the Centre Pompidou, March 27 and 28. Those two days, organized by the European program STARTS Residencies coordinated by IRCAM, were full of inspiring talks, lively debates, thought-provoking performance, and lovely moments of togetherness. Artists and researchers involved in the program presented the results of the European artistic residencies in which they participated in connection with technology research projects. The winners of the latest call for applications were announced. You can find here the new residencies projects in details.

The STARTS Residencies project

STARTS (Science, Technology and the ARTS) initiative, launched by the European Commission – DG CONNECT – promotes the inclusion of artists in innovation projects funded in H2020. It aims to remove the boundaries between art and engineering to stimulate creativity and innovation.

STARTS Residencies is one of the STARTS Pillars. This programme is to support and fund between 2017 and 2020, 45 artistic residencies that bring original artistic contributions to technology-based research projects. During each STARTS Residency, a tech project collaborates with an artist, leading to the creation of an original artwork, and to the development of the innovative aspects of the tech research. A grant (up to 30,000€) is awarded to the artist of each START Residency as a contribution to her/his involvement in the residencies programme. Additional support to the residency can also be brought by a producer.

Consortium members: ArtShare, École Polytechnique fédérale de Lausanne, Fraunhofer Group Information and Communication Technologies, French Tech Culture, Inova+, Ircam, Libelium.
