LabexMed is a Laboratory for Excellence in Mediterranean Studies. Coordinated by the Maison Méditerranéenne des Sciences de l’Homme in Aix-en-Provence (France), it has the ambition of moving further along the path towards pluridisciplinary and integrated research on the Mediterranean, while building on the strength of its partner units’ disciplines (archaeology, history, anthropology, sociology, geography, political sciences, economics, law, philosophy, epistemology) by encouraging the dialogue between human and social sciences (HSS) and the earth, life and environmental sciences, throughout any time and geographical scales.

The Camargo Foundation and the LabexMed program are keen to stimulate relations and cultural exchanges between researchers and artists of the Mediterranean Basin in order to support the development of projects at the interface between HSS and the arts with the aim of a common production.

Eligibility: the program is open to teams composed of 2 to 5 persons including artist(s) and researcher(s). The team’s project will include at least one researcher from a research unit of LabexMed program (see guidelines). Priority will be given to teams which include members from a Mediterranean country.

Deadline to apply: from February 1st to April 27th, 2017.
