In parallel to its fundamental missions of research and creation, IRCAM is committed to sharing its knowledge and know-how, its technologies with the general public. Cutting-edge research and diffusion of innovations, an international reference for education and the democratization of artistic practices are the driving forces behind the institute’s educational activities.

At IRCAM and beyond, over 10 different educational programs are offered every year to music professionals, to artists and scientists, to students be they enrolled in high school or at the conservatory. This offer is complemented by the academy for young creation held during the ManiFeste festival open to composers and performers and, via the IRCAM Forum’s web platform to the community of IRCAM software users.
