As an institute of advanced study based at Aix-Marseille University, we are part of the French Network of Institutes of Advanced Study (RFIEA)  and participate in the FIAS/French Institutes for Advanced Study Call:

This project has received funding from the European Union's Horizon 2020 research and innovation programme under the Marie Skłodowska-Curie grant agreement No 945408.

In this framework for the academic year 2022-23, we offer 4 places also open to artists in 4 highly interdisciplinary programmes. Here is the page dedicated to IMéRA on the FIAS website:

And the web page on our institution's website:


IMéRA residences are structured around four scientific programs: (i) Arts, Sciences and Society (ii) Interdisciplinary Explorations (iii) Mediterranean (iv) Necessary Utopias.

As for eligibility, FIAS awards fellowships to outstanding researchers of all career levels, from postdoctoral researchers to senior scientists. The minimum requirement is a PhD + 2 years of research experience at the time of the application. Exception will be made for scholars with a Master + 6 years of full-time research experience after the degree (PhD training will not be considered in the calculation of experience). Artists holding a teaching or research position in an institution, and developing approaches at the intersection of art and science, are eligible for the FIAS call. Researchers from all countries are eligible to the Programme but they have to have spent no more than 12 months in France during the three years prior to the application deadline.
